No Sign That an Agreement Is at Hand — 

Four Verdicts Are Possible 

Under the Charge. 

Minneapolis. Feb. 19. — There Is yet no 
sign from the jury in the Hamilton 
case that an agreement Is at hand. Tiie 
jury is apparently taking Its time in 
arriving at a verdict. Its members re- 
tired last night about 11 and Judge 
Brooks went home, satisfied that there 
would be no news before morning. This 
morning at 8 the jury went to breakfast, 
and nothing has leaked out from the 

Jury room to Indicatt whether any bal- 
lots had been taken or how the Jury was 

Under the charge four indictments 
are po^ible— murder In the first or sec-

Hamilton retains his composure re- 
markably well, despite tEae awful sus- 
pense. He is still confident of ac-

Wife of Saloon Keeper Shot and One of the 

Raiders Wounded in An Attaclt On 

Kansas Saloon. 

Leavenworth. Kan.. Feb. 19.— Mrs. Hudscn. wife of John Hudson, a 
"joint keeper" at Milwood, fourteen 
miles north of this city, was shot and 
instantly killed night during a raid 
upon her husband's saloon. One of the 
raiders was slightly wounded. Hudson 
had been warned to close his place, but 
refused. About 10 o'clock three men 
entered and called for drinks. "WiLien 
served they rapped on the counter, evi- 
dently to give a signal. Hudson jumped 
from behind the bar and grappled with 
f ne of the men. In the scrimmage a 
.shotgun which one of the men carried 
was di.«charged. The contents entered 
llhe wall. Mrs. Hudson, attracted by the 

noise, ran screaming Into the xoom, 
while a mob of forty men. most of whom 
wore masks, entered in answer to the 
signal. In the melee that followed an- 
other charge was fired from the shot- 
gun. It struck Mrs. Hudscn. tearing 
off the top of her head. AyilUam Webb, 
one of the raiders, wa.« struck in the 
shoulder by a revolver bullet. Nearly 
100 shots were fired. 

Hudson carried his dying wife into 
an adjoining rjom and the mob retire<l 
without wrecking ^ho joint. Sheriff 
E^•erhard. who wtnt to Millwood, has 
secured four prisoners, ti^o of whom are 
John and Henr>- Wilson, young farmers. 
There were no women in the mob. which 
was tompo.^ed of fariners In disguise. 
There is much cxcltipvnt today and 
further trouble is anticipated. 


One of the Three Men Arrested By Omaha 

Police and Positively Identified By 

Young Gudahy and Oihers. 

Omaha, Xeb., Feb. 19.— One of the 
three men in the Cudahy kidnapping 
plot has been arrested. Edward Cudahy. 
Jr.. this afternoon positively Identified 
the prisoner. He said: -'This is the 
man who asked me to get into the 
wagon. There is no doubt about it; he 
is the man." 

Although the police refuse to divulge 
the prisoner's name, Edward Cudahy, 
the millionaire packer, who paid $25. 00) 
in gold for the release of his son. thi.s 
afternoon stated to the As^ooiatf d Pres^s 
that the man under arrest has been 
identified l>y his son as the man who 
acco.'ted him in front of the Cudahy 
residence, and who kept him company 
in the house to which he was drlv^-n on 
the night of the abduction. Mr. Cudahy 
said the prisoner also has been identified 

by one of the serve -it j- v'ho saw the let- 
ter demnndjng the raneom thrown upon 
the Cudahy lawn, and by an.nher person 
whose name he will not make public for 
the present. 

Mu-h mystery suircund.s the aire^t 
of the alleged kidnapper. Not until th!« 
afternoon was a word permitted to be 
made j<GWlc <in the case, although it has 
lie'-n learned that the arrest wa.-; in.ide 
Saturday n'ght. Two local officers are 
said to have made the capture. The pri- 
soner is said to have been under sur- 
veillance for some time, aa it was be- 
lieved he had been writing letters con- 
cprning the case. When the dectectives 
had fully satlt^fieti their suspicion, they 
placed the man in the city jail. Separate 
interviews with the three persons men- 
tioned strengthened the belief that one 
of the principals vva« at last caught, and 
the partially veiled announcement of 
his arrest followed. 


That Is What Gen. Grosvenor of Ohio Asserts 

and He Has Talked With President 

McKinley Recently. 

Washington, Feb. 19.— (Special to The 
Herald.)— Gen. Grosvenor of Ohio said 
t.iday that. he did not apprehend there 
would be an extraordinary session of 
the Fifty-seventh congress. 

"I can see no reason." said the Oliio 
representative, "why President McKin- 
ley will be forced to call an extra ses- 
sion. I have maintained right along 
that an extra .session can be av vid.d. 

and I am more strongly c«'invinced toda.v 
than at any time in the past that the 
president will not assemble the new 
congress in the early spring, or at any 
later period." 

Gen. Grosvenor. as is well known, is 
one of Prtv=ident McKlnIey'.s most inti- 
mate friends. -\5 he has discussed the 
whole matter with Prt^ident McKrnley 
very recently, he dcul'tless has a pretty 
good idea of the president's intentions.

Illinois Legltitlure Will ^^< 

quire Into Heeler Dowle's 



Provided For- Peers thst the 

Hanegemsnt Will Ruin 

the Depositors. 

Springfield, 111., Feb. 19.— A resolution 
was adopted today by the lower house 
of the Illinois legislature, providing for 
the appointment of a committee of five 
to investigate the Zion City bank, of 
Chicago. The resolutions cite the bank 
as "an institution receiving savings de- 
posits and transacting other banking 
business without any official super- 
vision for the protection of depositors, 
said bank being said to be owned, oper- 
ated and controlled by John Alexander 
Dowie, alleged faith-healer; that there 
have been deposited in said bank large 
sums of money to be held In trust, or 
invested for the benefit of the deposi- 
tors," and "that Dowie or his agents 
have purchased hundreds of thousands 
of dollars' worth of property at tremen- 
dously inflated value as a site of a pro- 
posed city or religious community and 
contemplate adding thereon improve- 
ments, which in the aggregate will 
amount to an enormous sum, and failure 
to realize profits on said real estate 
speculation, or any circumstances ad- 
versely affecting the success of that en- 
terprise, would be likely to involve the 
Dowie interests in financial ruin." 

The committee to be appointed is 
given full power to examine into the 
affairs of the institution and ascertain 
who, if any one. is associated with 
Dowie in the management of the bank,

Poi^ ' of Spain, Island of Trinidad, 
Tues y, Feb. 19.— A correspondent of 
the .sociated Pr?ss has returned from 
a t€ days' stay in Caracas, Venezuela, 
wh ■ 3 he went to nvestigate the Venez- 
uelan system. Tlie outlook, as one sees 
it at the Venezuelan capital, is not 
good. There is a feeling of apprehen- 
sion in the air. The Castro government 
becomes more unpopular, and hostility 
to it is talked ritiier freely, and th'3 
substantial and j;olvent people of the 
community condemn the government's 
attitude toward the New York and 
Bermudez AsphaU company. The New 
York and Bermmlez company, the cor- 
respondent is informed, is quietly gath- 
ering a strong force of well-armed and 
well-drilled men at the pitch lake. These 
men are under the command of Maj. 
Rafferty, formerly of the Seventy-first 
New York reglmijnt. a brave and effi- 
cient officer. Th?y will resist all en- 
croachment, whether made by govern- 
ment or revolutionary troops. The 
United States gunboat Scorpion has 
been ordered to Die pitch lake, with or- 
ders not to alljw he company to be dis- 
possed prior to :he conclusion of the 
judicial investigation of the case now 
being made in Washington. 

The Venezuelan government is en- 
deavoring in every possible way to per- 
suade the New York and Bermudez com- 
pany to resort to the triVjunals. The re- 
fusal of the company to adopt that 
course is based upon the knowledge that 
in Venezuela the president or dictator 
changes the judg?s in a night, and im- 
prisons them if they do not give the 
judgments they are bidden to give. 

Tiie correspondent talked with five 
diplomats in Caracas. They all asserted 
that the United States government had 
acted with great prudence and with a 
degree of forb'^arance that almost 
ceased to be a viriue. They spoke highly 
of the skill and tact with which Min- 
ister Loomis had met a delicate and 
difficult situation The diplomatic side 

of this business is most important and 
interesting. The United States, ater re- 
ceiving all of the legal records and facts 
in the controversy between the Vene- 
zuelan government, desired to make a 
thorough investigation, and sent for a 
complete set of laws of Venezuela, 
some sixteen volumes. Pending the 
outcome of this investigation, they 
asked the Venezuelan government, as a 
matter of courtesy between friendly na- 
tions, to kindly suspend the operation 
of the decree dispossessing the Ne\V 
York Bermudez company till an investi- 
gation could be made. This the Vene- 
zuelan government declined to do. The 
request was repeated and again refused. 
It was then made a third time, in aa 
emphatic manner, by Minister Francis 
B. Loomis, in fact. It was put as a sort 
of vigorous demand the third time, but 
the result was the same. Then a protest 
was made, and that was Ignored by tho 
Castro government, though it had ample 
power and authority to meet any and all 
of these demands if It saw fit. 

The trouble over the asphalt is only 
one of a large number of Incidents in 
which the Venezuelan government has 
recently been guilty of grave offense to 
the governme»it of the United States. 
Three months ago the consular agent of 
the United States, at Barcelona, was 
thrust into prison without cause. The 
United States government demanded 
an apologry, but lias not yet received It. 
A year earlier the same coiisi'lt was 
arrested and threatened wltl^orture if 
he did not pay a large sum o^money to 
local milita.-/ officials. A few months 
ago a German merchant at Barct'ona 
was tortured by ofUcials there for the 
purpose of extorting money from him. 
The German government =ent a 
cruiser there at onee and got satisfac- 
tion and kept the vessel four months 
in Venezuelan waters. The Italians nave 
had men-of-war in Venezuelan waters 
for the most of the time for a year. 
Last year the American consul at La- 
mualra was attacked and his lifo 
threatened. The United States govern- 
ment has never received satisfactory 
reparation for that.

A little later on In the year the bu- 
reau will be making public statistics 
regarding the manufacturing Interest* 
of the country, lumber, mining, agri- 
culture, etc. The understanding now is 
that the general work of the burean 
will be completed within the next six

sary to complete this census will keep 
Director Merriam at the bureau's head- 
quarters. In this city, for two or three 
years to come, and. perhaps, until con- 
gress authorizes the taking of the' next 
census ten years hence. Governor Mer- 
riam is an earnest supporter of the Jeg- 
islation looking to the establishment of 
a permanent census bureau. Like other 
men, who have had experience In sta- 
tistical matters of this kind, he has 
seen the necessity of a i>ermanent es- 
tablishment, and has so urged upon 
members of congress. It Is not pos- 
sible, however, that anything will be 
accuinp'.ished at this season, and it is 
also said to be unlikely that the Fifty- 
seventh congress will legislate favor- 
ably for the establishment of a perman- 
ent bureau.

Dr. Robinson, Reahh Gom- 

mlsiionor, Makes Report of 

Department's Expenses. 



FI{Mln| Contagious Diseases 

Requires a Considerable 

Outlay of Honey. 

Th» epidemic of contagious disease 
about which there has been so much 
talk recently, has resulted in a public 
report from Health Commissioner Rob- 
inson to the mayor and the council. 

There have been 309 cases of smallpox 
In the currtnt epidemic and the cost 
to the city has been $17,259. In 1395 
there were a dozen cases in this city 
and it cost 522,000. Minneapolis in the 
past year has spent something like 
1100,000; St. Paul is at present paying 
at the rate of $2000 a month, and Su- 
perior, with 115 cases during the past 
year, has paid out $10,000 to check the 
epidemic. Dr. Robinson's report Ifl 
part Is as follows: 

"Ah a preliminary to this report it 
may l>e stated on the authority of the 
United States marine service that 
smallpox has been epidemic in this 
country during the i»ast three year.^, 
the first causes appearing in the South- 
ern states, notably Texas and Soutn 
Carolina, and from points it iias 
spread into nearly ever state of ihe 
irnion. In the present epidemic the 
disease has been of an unusually mild 
type. In former years the mortality 
from smallpox ran.tjod from 10 to 40 per 
cent, but in the present epidemic the 
death rate has been, in most localities, 
not over 2 pt-r cent, and often less than 
that. The disease being of such a mild 
and modifle<l character has been miich 
harder to detect and ccnlrol, is it often 
passed unrecognized, even by experi- 
en< ed physicians, as has been the case 
in .several instances in this city. 

A single case was introduced into Du- 
luth in August, 1.S99. There were no 
other cases following this. On Fel>. 22, 
1900, the first case of the pre.^ent series 
came to West Duluth from Texas, and 
from that time until the present, small- 
pox has exisited in a consideraljle quan- 
tity in this city. Between Feb. 22, 190'l, 
and March 13 of the same year (which 
was the date of the commeireiiient of 
the present administration of the health 
ofllce) there (occurred eif;ht ( ase.s oC 
smallpox, all in West Duluth. Durln;< 
the month of March, the disetso seemed 
to have been effectually stamp^vi (lit, 
reappear<d in April, through one or 
two cases that had been concealed, in 
the Western part of the city. In June 
and July a few cases niaile thc-ir ap- 
pearance in the noighborhoitd of Twen- 
ty-fourth avenue west and a few t:a.^-e.s 
Avere reportetl from outslile. Again, m 
the latter part of August, when the city 
was considered almost free from Ihe 
disease, an entire family Avas dis- 
covered <jn Miehlgan street .*-iif- 
fering from small pox. N'o physician 
had been called and the cases were 
bring eoncealed. From this point a 
iiumber of again made their ap- 
pearance in the West F^nd, and con- 
tinued to do so until the date of this rp- 
port. At thi.s writing, by far the greater 
number of cases cared for in thi.M c'ly, 
are iniporte 1 I'rom outside, and partieu- 
larly from the luml»T camps. I will 
h?re submit the followin;? figures: 

Total number of cases smallpox. Fob. 
1, 1900, to F(b. 1, 1901, 309; ciuarnutined 
by the health department. 303; discov- 
ered after recovery. C; s(. nt to the city 
hospital, 22S; rjuarantined at home, 75; 
cared for by the city, 290; imported from 
outside, 115; never vaccinated, 267; vac- 
cinated more than seven years ago, 3.'*; 
vaccinated withi nthe past seven yea'-s, 
7; deaths from smallj)ox. 3. 

"About 250 persons were quarantined 
on account of their exposure to the dis- 
ease, and food was supplied them for 
an average period of fifteen day.s. For 
some time after the made Its ap- 
pcar.ince. and as long as new <'ases 
were not continually Introduced from 
outside, rigid measures were taken to 
c<!ntrol the spread of the disease. By 
this is meant that the persons who had 
been at all in contact with a patient 
after the appearance of the eruption 
were quarantined: but. later it became 
evident that if this plan were carefully 
carried out a very large number of 
people Would be serl »usly discommodfd 
and prevented fr<im attending to their 
business, and under the advlee of the 
state board of health the following plan 
was generally adopteJ: When a case 
of smallpox was discovered before or 
in an early stage of its evuptlon. if the 
case was promptly removed to the hos- 
pital, and ttie persrms who had been 
in any way exposed were vaccinated, 
these people and the premises were not 
quarantined, but remaln«»<l under the 
close observation of the health depart- 
m<'nt as long as there was any possi- 
bility of their develoi)lng the disease, 
the apartments of the patient, of course, 
being closed and thoroughly fumigated. 
If, <m ttie other hand, the disease had 
pregressed to a h'ghly cnnt.Tglous stage 
before it was discovered, or there were 
persons In the house who had not been 
v.iccinated. then the place was quaran- 
tined, and if necessary kept under guard 
for a period of fifteen diys- The less 
rigid plan first mentioned has. aa far 
as I am able to observe, not resulted in 
any spfead of the disease. To have 
quarantined every bui'dlng in w!hi( h 
there has been a ca.«e of smalli>ox during 
the past year would moan that nearly 
one-half of the hotels and boarding 
houses would have been closed, and the 
expense for the present epidemic up to 
date more than doubled. 

'It will be noted by the statistics 
above given that 9S per cent of our 
cases had not been vaccinated within 
the past seven years. For all practical 
purp 'ses, therefore, a reeently and suc- 
cessfully vaccinated individual may be 
considered an 'immune,' njid such per- 
son'^. when exposed to the disease, it 
would be unjust and unnecessary to 
quarantine. ■» 

"I'ntil October. 1000. the health depart- 
ment was under the control and direc- 
tion of the board of health: but no pro- 
vision being made for such a board by 
the new charter, the commissioner of 
health became succe.=sor to that body, 
and from October to the present time 
has followed the general plan of caring 
for smallpox eases as it was outlined 
and laid out by the board of health. As 
provided for !n the state law and the 
city ordinance, physicians were ap- 
poiiited from month to m^int.H lo \]Mt 
the cases In the hospital and to assist 
the commissioner of health in examin- 
ing and looking out for suspected cases 
throughout the city. A professional 
nurse was placed In charge of the hos-

pltal, and in the absence of a physician 
the patients are under her authority. 

The buildings have l)een kept clean and 
In as sanitary a condition as i><>sslble. 
The. Inerea.sing number of cases have 
made it necessary to erect three new 
buildings; one of these Is of a perman- 
ent character, as advised by a committee 
from your honorable body; the other two 
were constructed for temporary use. One 
of the chief difficulties encountered nas 
been the lack of proper water .supply. 
To correct this, a second well has ri~ 
cenily been sunk in thtr h'KSpital grounds, 
which will partly overcome this incon- 
venience. While the buildings are some- 
what bare, and the conveniences not those 
of a Well ef|Ulpriei hospHal. I b^-ilieve the 
patients havt- all been well cared for, anil 
there has been little con^piaint from that 
source, although at tinoes the buiidln,;j 
havJi been greatly crowded. The nur.^e^ 
who hf:ve been charge of the hospitaJ 
have givn most exctllent ser\"ice, and ar-? 
entitled 10 unusual credit. The avo-rage 
length of time, that It la necess-ary to 
keep a patient In ihe hospital has be ?n 
eighteen days, it being here understood 
that patients are not usually admitted 
until the'enrl nf the llrst week <>f th- 
disease; no i)atii-nl has been discharged 
until the scabi)lng has been completed 
and the entire body smooth and cledn. 
Kreguent antisei»tlc baths are glvem Jur- 
Ing the week preceding the patient's dis- 
charge; he is then given a final anil 
co/r.plete bath, and either rr^w clolhcjs ir 
those thaf have been thOT<iughly washed 
and fumigated, are given him when he l=> 
dlschargeii. The use of alcoholic stimu- 
lents in tlie hosr>ital has been strictly 
forbidden, excepllnt; those pres<;iit)ed b.V 
the physician for patients who are con- 
fined to their beds. Only a»>uut 25 per 
cent of the cas<»s sent to ihe hospital have 
been confined to their beds at any tlm^ 
during their stay there; but yhlle many 
of the cases hav.^ been of such a milil 
varieity. a few others have been very se- 
vere, and of the much dreaded confluent 
chartcter— three of these resulting 

"Inder the former administration of the 
health oltice, and again at the bei^'inning 
of the present year, the coimiy supt-rln- 
tendent of poor and the county physician 
refused to assist or take charge of any 
cases of contagious diseases; it therefore 
beeame nece.«iiry for the health 
•lepartment, in complianee with the 
state law regulating the care and 
quarantining of infectious dls- to take full chirgc of these cases 
anil assume the responsibility of the cost. 
As far as consistent with the health and 
welfare of the community, a careful econ- 
omy has been practiced throughout, but 
the nature of the business and the large 
number of the cases have naturally result- 
ed In a conslderaiile drain upon the eitys 
funds. In the earlier part of the epidemic. 
a few claims were made for hou.sehohl 
good.q destroyed by order of the iitalth 
department, and approved, but at present 
such claims are not pas.oed by the health 
commissioner, but where the goods de- 
stroyed are of actual necessity to the par- 
ties concerned, thev are replaced by this 
ottice, miller advice of the city attorney. 

About $i'.tM was expended for quaran- 
tine police and others in charge of the hos- 
pital and (piarantined houses. At preseiit 
very few guards are used, and this item is 
being considerably reduced. The cost of 
mo<Iical services has been consistent with 
the charges usually made for attendance 
-upon contagious diseases. In purcha.sing 
furnishings, fuel and food supplies for the 
hospital, the board of health during its 
term of service and the present h»'alth 
commis.^ioner have endeavored to see that 
the lowest prices were obtained, consist- 
ent with good material. All bills again.-;i 
the citv h.ive been carefully checked up 
and sci-utinized.- In one or two Inslanc.-s. 
estaldishments ilecllned to furnish cloth- 
ing and other materials for the hospltil 
on account of the character of the cases 
In furnishing tho hospital, second-hand 
good.-*, because of their lower cost, have 
been often u.sed. During tho simimer 
months, the use of tents was resorted to, 
as a good substitute for wooden buildings, 
and at present two buildings are In u.^o. 
the cost of each being only |-235. The nurse 
in chiwge has been paid *i') per week, and 
for this amount has .always given excel- 
lent service. The charge for the use of 
the ambidanc", was mane by contract by 
the board of health. Tobacco in mo<1eiate 
(luantkies, has been allowed cfmvales<ent 
patients has been prohibit^-d. 
The di.Vtance betwt en the hospital and the 
city has been such that certain expense 
hn>< arisen owlni: to the diffleulty In de- 
livering goo<ls. It Is to be further borne 
In mind that a majority of the people con- 
lined in the hosiiital have not been so ill 
as to be In bed. but were simply confined 
there on account f>f the extreme contag- 
iousnesii of the disease, and loss of ap- 
petite not l)een a promin»-ni symptouj 
..f this malady. In general, it mny bo said 
that we have .ittempted to avoid extrava- 
gance, and onlv actual nece.ssltles have 
been provided. Hy a system of careful 
fumigation, we are at present largely re- 
ducing the Item for replaced clothin?. and

Ing cannot be washed and fumlgatril. will 
it have to W rei>laced when the patients

Buhl, In Town of Oroit Scott, 

Is Voted Village By 


There is a new village in St. Louis 
county by the name of Buhl. It is lo- 
cated in the township of Great Scott, 
on the Mesaba range, and it was voted 

into existence at an election last Fri- 
day. The report of the election was 
filed in the otlice of the register of 
deeds yesterday afternoon, and it shows 
that seventy-three votes were cast, out 
of which seventy -two were in favor of 
incorpoiation. The Individual who al- 
ways takes the opposite side of any ar- 
gument was present, and he cast one 
lonely but decided "no" vote. 

The village territory is a mile square, 
beginning at the southeast corner of 
the nei4 of section 20, 58-19, running a 
mile north, then a mile west, a mil'.' 
South and then a mile east to the start- 
ing point. 

The township of Great Scott has a 
name that excites laughter and interest 
whenever it is mentioned. This s.mrce 
of amusement can be laid at the doors 
of Charles G. Miller, formerly a county 
commissioner. He named the nev.' 
town, when It was organized, Scott. It 
was found, however, that there is al- 
ready a Scott township in the state, 
and when this was brought up Mr. 
Miller moved that it be made Great 
Scott. It was a joke, but it took the 
board and went through.

From Northern Pacific 

Forf Raising Trades. 

The estatf of,E. A. Lldel has begun 
suit in district court to recover $5000 
damages frV>m t^e Northern Pacific rail- 
road because the road raised the track 
on the line that runs down Minnesota 
Point. Hefire the track was raised the 
I state sought tn secure an injunction, 
but the court held that it was not 
proper for It to interfere. Now the dis- 
pute has taken the form of a suit for 

The estate owps the n»^ of lot 14 and 
the sjutherly f.«.t of lot 15. Transfer 
division, and hfvs on the property two 
warehousesPlhat are alleged to have cost 
$13,000, one on each side of the track. 
It Is alleged that the warehouses were 
built in reliant e on the old grade, so 
that the track was so that the car doors 
would be level with the warehouse plat- 
form. The track was rai.sed 'i feet and 
7 Inches Jan. 5. and it is claimed that 
the usefulness of the warehouses Is de- 
stroyed unless th'V are raised to con- 
form to the new KraJe. The track, it 
Is claimed by the estate, was raised at 
the request of the Marshall-Wells Hard- 
ware company. The present tenants 
threaten to move out unless the build- 
ings are raised, hence the demand for 
damages. M. Uougl:iR is the attorney.

Y. M. C. A. Basket Ball Ttam Will 
Play Bad Wing on Friday. 

The Y. M. C. A. basket ball team will 
leave Thursday f)r Rod Wing, where on 
Friday they will play the deciding 
In the Red Wing-Duluth series. The game 
unless the score Is lied, will decide (he 
chami)lonship of the state, with the excep- 
tion of the university players. Each team 
has won two games on home grounds^ and 
although the Red Wing men have a largd 
floor than that to which the Y. M. C. A. 
men are accustomed, the home bo>s claim 
that It will not discomfit them to the ex- 
tent of losing the e:ame. On Saturday 
nixht the Duluth team will play the Min 
neav)0lls Y. M. C. A. at Minneapolis, but 
a.«i the latter has been defeated by Red 
Wing In three straight games the home 
boys entertain no fear of the result. 

Concerning one decisi' n in last Friday's 
game, where the ball thrown by a l^ior- 
ester. touched a spectator before falling 
in the basket ard ihe goal was not al- 
lowed by the referee, the Rew Wing men

the ball, though it seemed to strike the 
spectator, really hii the board and bound-

Jamts A. Tayltr Will Maka No 
Troubla For Authoritlas. 

James A. Taylor, the alleged bigaml.^t 
now under arrest in Seattle, has an- 
nounced that he will return to Duluth 
without fighting extradition. He even 
went so far as to sav that in order to ex- 
pedite matters It would be unnecessary 
for the local authorities to secure extra- 
dition papers, but Deputy Sherrff Bates, 
who will reach Seattle this evening or to- 
morrow, bias the necessary documents in 
his inside pocket. 

The Seattle papers were somewhat In 
error in regard to the man that has 
traced Tavkir. This has been kept rather 
quiet here, but in local police circles Rob- 
ert Benson is given the credit for some 
very fine detective work.

In the matter of the reeeivership of the 
S. J. Thomas Lumber company Judge 
Dlbell has made an order allowing E. L. 
Cook, of Two Harbors, to tile his qlaiin 
against the company, though the tixr.e 
for filing claims Is past. The ciaim was 
overlooked bv Cook's attorney, and as the 
attorney shouldered all the blame and 
made an aflidavit to the effeet that it 
was his fau'.t and not Cook's, the court 
permitted the claim to be filed. 

West Duluth 

The idea of holding the meeting of the 
resident property ownei-s along Central 
avenue as well as the representatives of 
the non-resident owners appears to be 
approved of by all the parties that are 
interested in the repaving of the avenue 
next spring. The board of public works 
and the city engineer have been asked 
to be present at the conference that will 
be held in Stawart's hall, and under the 
circumstances it Is believed that they 
will Ije present. The matter is being 
urged today with the property owners 
to turn out to the meeting tonight, ac.d 
it is hoped that every one that has a 
title to avenue property will b« thei"e 
to expresa his views and help in the 
steps that will be teuken to get the right 
petition before the city council. The 
Duluth aldermen will also be present to- 
night, and will gain from the confer- 
ence a knowledge of the sentiment of the 
peoi^e and the unlformd'ty of the de- 
mand for a new pavement that will be 
of aid to them in championing the mat- 
ter when it comes up in council. 

Gordon O'Nell, of Duluth; Moses Le 
Fevre and T. J. Ultlcan. of West Du- 
luth, were elected delegates at the Sun- 
day meeting of the 'Longshoremen's 
union to attend the conference between 
representatives of the unions and the 
vesselmen that will be held In Ashland 
next week. The local delegates were not 
instruc^ted. but It Is understood that the 
probabilities of a reduction from the 
60 cents per hour scale are pretty slim. 

The West Duluth branch of the W. C. 
T. U. will hold its rgeular meeting on 
Thursday afternoon of this week, at the 
home of Mrs. Dr. Keyes. Mrs. Helen 
Stewart will be the leader of the meet- 
ing. The subject that will be discussed 
by the ladles on Thursday afternoon is 
"Franchise." and the discussion will 
probably be* doubly Intere-.iting Ijecause 
of local applications that will be made 
as far as possible. It is hoped that the 
attendance, which has-been large at the 
past meetings, will be equally as good 
Thur.sday afternoon. A pleasing pro- 
gram, with musical selections, will also 
be rendered. 

A. J. Lindgren, of West Duluth. -who, 
with Mrs. Lindgren. has for the 
several months been visiting his old 
home in Solvesberg. Sweden, and other 
Kuioijean points, returned this morning, 
Mrs. Lindgren having gone on to Kings- 
ton, Ont., for a short visit with her 
parents. Mr. Lindgren .says that he 
found affairs much more prosperous in 
his native land than were the condi- 
tions when first he left it. America, 
however, holds out the greatest induce- 
ments to the Scandinavian, and Mr. 
Lindgren believes that the tide of immi- 
gration from f-weden and Norway will 
Ik' a.s heavy this year, if not heavier, 
than in former years. Mr. Lindgren left 
the elty l)efore the Northern Pacific 
denot was moved to the foiit of Sixty- 
third avenue, on tho river front, and he 
says th.1t he was much astonished at 
being put off in a swamp this morning 
and being told that it was West Duluth. 
He says that he was lost for some time, 
but finally recognizing an old land-tnark 
In the blast furnace, he was enabled to 
get back Into civilization. Mr. Lind- 
gren. while on his trip, got acquainted 
with all the new Swedish remedies, and 
will resume his former position at the 
Central Drug store. His trip agreed 
Avith him in the matter of health, for 
Mr. Lindgren says he weighs fifteen 
pounds more than he did when he left.

The many friendr? of Harry Huntoon

Wr E, Ktrn Decides to Ask 
One— Hugo Declelen Ap- 
peals Seme Beliefs. 

W. E. Kern, the Democratic candidate 
for alderman in the Eighth ward at the 
last election, throi gh his attorney, 
Peter J. Neff, yesterday afternoon filed 
a notice of appeal in the district court 
from the action of the council in declar- 
ing Edward Swenson. the Republican 
nominee, elected. It will be remembered 
that on the face of the returns Mr. 
Swenson defeated Mr. Kern by just two 
vot^s. and Mr. K?rn has decided to ask a 
recount, on the allegation that some of 
the votes cast for Mr. SwensKWi were 
marked for the purposes of identification 
and were count-id by the judges; that 
some votes for Mr. Kern were thrown out 
bv the judges, that were cmn unde-r 
conditions similar tc those cast last 
•pring for Mayor Hugo and declared 
l.>Kal by the supreme court; and from 
the general fact that the olecition was 
so close that the matter of a Jew votes 
would throw it either way. There nas 
been more or less speculation In poHtical 
circle* of late as to wnether the contest 
wc-uid really be made and no definite

Amateur safe crackers tried to bretk 
Into the vault of the Duluth-Superior 
Bill Posting company, 411 "West Michi- 
gan strt.-et, last night. The vault was 
filled with flour manufactured in Du- 
luth, and Manager Kene says that be 
had no idea it was so valuable, but if the 
would-be thieves will call during busi- 
ness hours he will show it to them. 

They forced the front door, and then 

endeavored to open one of the large^jt 
vaults in the city withnut dynamite. It 
Vvas strictly an amateur pei-formmce by 
hon.e talent, and the v.ork was very 
ragged. The ccmhinaii»in key wa-s 
knocked ofT the outside of the vault with 
some heavy in.«trument. the "bad men" 
evidently thinking^ that that v>a.= all that 
Wduld be nece&=ary to open a combina- 
tion lock.- "When it was ha.mmered oil 
and the door did not oi>on. they tried to 
knitk off the handle of the door, and 
were even lejs sujcessful. They couldn't 
make iny l»nprt'.s«iun on it. 

The vauU wa? filled with flour for

Mayor Amss May Object To 

Y. M. C. fi. Baskd Ball 

at Minneapolis. 

There 1= a report that Mayor Ames of 
Minneapolis may stop the basketball prame 
between Diiluth Y. M. C. A. and Minneap- 
olis Y. M. C. A. next Saturday night. If he 
does it will bo a result of the resolution 
recently adopted by the state Y. M. C. A. 
convention to have Governor \'jiu Sani 
prevent prize fighting in that city. 

Last night there was to have been a 
light betweeiT a clever Chicago feather- 
weight named Olson and '"Young'" Mow- 
ati. a hghtiag conductor of Miiineai)olls. 
Last weeK the Y. M. C. A. people in con- 
vention assembled got wind of the ap- 
pri'. idling fight and firv.-arded knock-out 
resolutions to the governor. The new 
governor is a rusher, hard hitler and 
clever, so he wrote Ma>or Ames that the 
law would have to be enforced. 

The m;iyor Is somewhat of a sporting en- 
thusiast and couldn't see any liarm in the 
miil. but when he receiv. d his instruc- 
tions from the governor he had to stop 
tile tight. In doing so he gave out the fol- 
lowing interview; 

"The governor has seen fit to get into 
this game and I propose to see that ho 
gets nis fill of it. There was absolutel.v 
no justirtcatl jn for him to interfere in this 
case. In fact, h-j assured me tiiat he would 
not. 1 invite 1 him to be present and to!d 
him that if he reason to stoo the 
program he bad my permission to do so. 
I suj>posed everything was all right. Then 
some V. M. C. A. folks *jwn at ilankato 
got at bini, and you know the rest. Xuw. 
shinoc the Y. M. C. lias thought best to 
take a ha.nd in this mailer, you just 
watch and sue what I do to the Y. M. C.

The second game in the series for the 
Graves-Manloy Agency trophy will be 
played next Saturday at Superior. The 
Duluth men had rathn- expected that 
the Superior men would come over heffe 
and play the second in the series of 
games, and then If they, play the 
third irr Superior, but they are not dis- 
posetl to do that, and assert the privi- 
lege of making the Duluth men play 
over there again. As they hold the 
trophy they are able to do this. As they 
are unable to furnish four poid sheets 
of ice to play on. they have asked ttiat 
two rinks play in the aftern"x~.n and 
two in the evening. The Duluth rinks 
will arrange among themselves a? to 
which will play in the afternoon and 
which in the evening. 

Tf-ie two Duluth rinks that went to 
the brinspiel at Winnipeg have returned. 
They went away expecting to win noth- 
ing and were not disappointed. They 
did have a fine time, however, and they 
brought back one thing — tho Tuckett 
distri:*. med.<l which is to go to the 
player making the best sore in points. 

The Duluth men say that is the bon- 
spiel of the Northwestern associition 
is held here next winter the attendance 
of Canadian players will be very large. 
Up at Winnipeg they are talking of a 
special train, so great is the number of 
t^ose who SAV they want to come. The 
Duluth men were told to expect from 
fifteen ta twenty rinks. They said, too, 
tCiat they were coming not so much to 
curl as to have a good time In Duluth.

session of the tenili i-ongress of ibe 
national society of the Daughters of the 
American revolution was well attendel 

today, most of th - delegates and alier-

in general charge of the organization rf

organized chapters and 7T unorganized

The correspcinding sccretarv reported 
that drring the past year Zo.'hi appiica-

bavo been issued. The secr« ".ary recom-

the "real daug.iters,"' of whom tht re are 
500. and assist in their support. Tlie

Wireless Telegraphy. 

Successful experiments have recently 
been accomplished In wireless tek- 
graphy, and its adoption will undoubted- 
ly be a g)od thing, and revolutionize 
many ways of doing business. One 
writer has goije so far as to say that 
wireless telegraphy is the greatest dis- 
covery of the age. We beg to differ. 
i Don't overlook Hostetter's Stonvach Bit- 
! ters when you talk about the great 
thing.s of the world. This peerless 
m.edicine has done more to promote 
health and settle stomach troubles than 
any other medicine in existence. It cures 
dyspepsia. Indigestion, malaria and con- 
stipation. It never fails. Try it. and 
be sure and get the genuine, with our 
private revenue stamp over the neck of 
the bottle. Don't let the druggist palm 
off a "substitute."

New York, Feb. 19. — The annual meet- 
ing of the American Steel and Wire 
company was held today in Jersey City. 
James Hillhouse, an attorney, attended 
the meeting to oppose the ratification of 
the sale of the American Steamship 
company lake line to the company.,— 

A resolution was offered by Max Pam 
to confirm the action of the directors in 
the purchase of the American Steam- 
ship company for $5,63(},t»00, and that tht 
Oiflcere be authorized to carry out the 
agreement of purchase. The statement 
was made by Chairman GalifCerd that 
the American Steamship company 
earned last year over $800,000 net, with 
only a part of the llect in operation. 

Attorney Hillhouse 'ipposed the con- 
firmation of the purchase of the Lake 
Steamship line, on the ground that the 
valuation of the twelve ships of the line 
is fixed by the American Lloyds at $3,- 
350,000. instead of $5.6.?0.000. Mr. Hill- 
house said that he expects to bring a 
suit on the ground of a breach of trust 
on the part of the directors if the pur- 
(hase is made. 

Chairman Clifford declared it was 
necessary to have the ships. It would 
take two years to build such a fleet and 
he did not believe even these ve.ssels 
will carry all the ore that the company 
uses. The company will have to rent 
some tonnage in addition. The resolu- 
tion to ratify the purchase was 

The action of the board of directors 
during the year was approved, includ- 
ing the amendment to the byla^^s pro- 
posing dividend action until March. The 
meeting then adjourned. The vote to 
approve the steamship purchase was 
661,739 shares in favor and 1264 shares 
against. It was said after the meeting 
that the old oflTlcers of the company 
would be re-elected. 



One day last week a workman who 
was putting in new electric light fix- 
tures in a Park row cigar store accident - 
ally let a piece of piping fall and It 
crashed into a mirror which reached 
from the celling to the floor, smastiing 
it to ideces. says the New York Sun. 
The empty frame with a few jagged 
edges of glass sticking from its inner 
edges was noticed by every customer 
who came in, and invariably the ques- 
tion was asked: 

"Mirror broken?" 

The clerk addressed would reply that 
it was. but long before the d.iy was over 
the clerks became weary of answeiing 
that and many other questions about 
the broken mirror, such as "Was it an 
accident?" "Was it insured?" '"How 
did it happen?" "Who did it?" "How 
much did it cost?" 

The night clerk soon tired of his job 
and thought out a plan to put a stop to 
the questions. So he wrote out the fol- 
lowing answers and pasted the paper 
on the frame of the mirror: 

"Yes, It is broken." 

"No. accidentally." 

"Excuse me, I'm busy." 

"I don't know." 

"About $50 or $60." 





"No, I can't tell." 

This had the desired result of shut- 
ting "IT questions on the subject of the 


Pome publishers use in returning re- 
jected manuscripts printed forms which 
are nicely worded and calculated to 
mitigate the severity of the suppa.<»ed 
blow to the author, says the New Tork 
Sun. One of these seems to have in- 
spired ttte following composition, which 
the author sends to publishers who do 
not want his article: 
"Editor of the : 

"Dear Sir: The author greatly re.grets 
that he is compelled to return the en« 
closed slip. His refusal does not neces- 
P'^rlly Implv a lack of appreciation of 
the polite mi.ssive. The editor stiould 
not deduce from the author's action 
that the slip possesses neither literary 
morit not interest. On the contrary, 
the slip bears a resemblance to others 
eent the autfnor In style etc.. and the

author to accept it for publication. 

"While the slip is of no service to thj^ 
author, he would suggest to the editor 
ttnat it might be available for use by 
some other author. , ^ . * 

"In conclusion, the author desires to 
present his cimpliments to the editor, 
and"^ trusts that a refusal to publish will 
not be taken seriously to heart (!), and 
to thank him for the privilege of exam- 
ining 's 'regret slip.'

How Manusi:ripts Are Side- 

Tracked In Many and 

Varlfiut Way. 

I sometimes feel sorry for the public 
when I think of the Interesting books 
which it will never see, says a publish- 
er's reader in the Boston Transcript. 
Some of the b?st things that have 
ever gone through my tiands will, I feel 
sure, never reach the light of day. In 
nearly every case there Is a different 
reason for this. In some instances the 
author lays his own heart history bare 
and does it with a fearlessness, bold- 
ness and baldnes!! wliichmake it forever 
unsuitable reading for the "gentle 
reader" of tradlli jn. fipch a book as this 
cften contains tiie flfiest passible ma- 
terial for a story, but the author, 
through some deficiency of education 
or of licer.iry pov er, is unabK to handle 
it with lequisitt skill and give it the 
needed finish. The work is not tlie less 
interesting on t lat account, but It is 
inevitably ruled out from the list of 
manuscripts to be published. A gen- 
uine and talentel novelist who was at 
liberty to work on such crude, un- 
finished material might bring it to suc- 
cess. Such books do, indeed, sonie- find their way into the hands of 
a sympalCic-tic tritic and writer, who 
makes good th ; insufficiency. More 
often the manu.'cripts continue in the 
great sea of the "unavailable." 

Occasionally a manuscript comes up 
for consideration and is by every reader 
endorsed as a good thing. Perhaps it 
is something which would, of a certain- 
ty, appeal only to a limited circle of 
readers; that cir< le may be an important 
one, but not laige enough to warrant 
any publisher in taking the risk of pub- 
lication while he is in doubt of its prov- 
ing to be of general interest. At timer 
Fome piece of Inspiration goes the 
rounds, and, as in one memorable case 
which I recall, it wins added approval at 
every publishing house, but is counted 
too small to be considered. I know of 
such a little gen , too long for a maga- 
zine article and :oo brief for most pub- 
li.«hers' lists; It has been knocking at 
the doors of publishers for five years; 
everywhere it received a gracious wel- 
come and a graci-^us and regretful die- 
missal. It is a pity for real merit thus 
to go begging bt cause of some point of 
commercialism involved. 

I think of anotfier book, autobiograph- 
ical in the sense that Marie Bashkirt- 
seff was autobiographical — a journal, 
indeed, written n En.glish Emersonian 
and revealing so ne facts, fascinating t? 
those psychologically, emotionally and 
spiritually Inclined. It is accounted too 
esoteric, and the world is the loser for 
the verdict. 

Sometimes the pride and higlh spirit 
of ^e author stand in the way of a 
book's acceptan'-e. I know of such a 
novel, the first written by one who af- 
terwards becar-ie famous. Certain 
changes were 1 nperatively called for 
if any rea.?onabl(' publisher were to give 
the book counter ance. The higfh-strung 
voung woman :-efuped to alter her 
handiwork, even though Its real merit 
and strong poin :s had been generously 
f'onceded by the powers that govern the 
destinies of unpublished books. Fhe 
impatiently threw it in her desk, made 
no efftrt to impru've it. and wrote others 
which found favor. In her desk It was 
found after h ?r death. Strangely 
enough, or rather as might be expected, 
when those In cinrge of her unfinished 
works handed this in for publication, 
the same praise and the same criticism 
which It recelvec In the beginning of the 
author's career were accorded and In- 
sf?ted upon. A new hand made the 
changes nnd ttie bosk was launched. 

It \s difficult to tell what sidetracks 
some manuscripts. They are received 
and read with ippredatfon: then, be- 
cause no cin publish everything It 
approves, something seemingly more 
"sure" Is taken, and the meritorious 
work Is politely -eturned. In such cases 
I am Inclined to think that discourage- 
ment and the sense of failure on re- 
ceipt of a stereotyped reply leads the 
writer of many it clever book to give up 
the effort to get it to the reco!?mltlon 
of the public. It would be very remark- 
able If this were not so, for many hur- 
ried heads of piblishlng houses find no 
time for sympathetic and appreciative 
letters concernlrg rejected manuscripts. 
Indeed, there ar=> those who have found 
themselves involved in endless corres- 
pondence through an attempt to be kind 
in the matter o' rejection. The easiest 
wav undoubtedly is the non-committal 
•way. There aie those, however, who

delight to speak their praise of an able 
work, even if it Is rejected. Neverthe- 
less, I think that even the most frank 
and nattering letter carries an element 
of dejection and depression to an author, 
and many, unquestionably, succumb to 
the feeling of futility. Indeed, history 
tells us that some of our greatest writers 
of the past burned some of their stories 
in fits of discouragement. 

I know of an author who In several 
years has made nit inquiries about her 
manuscript, which Is a very clever one 
but which has repeatedly met a cruel 
fate. It lies among some unclaimed 
manuscripts, and she has juob.^.bly loet 
heart in sending it on further rounds, 
thouph I have every reason to believe 
she still lives and mig?it continue her 
concern for her production. 

When one realizes how many books^ 
even some of the really successful ones 
among these— get taken by a hair- 
breadth's chance, almost a throwing of 
the dice, as It were, it may be better 
understood why some fall of a place In 
the outside world of books. Said a pub- 
lisf-ier in regard to a novel widely read 
at present: "We will gamble on it; the 
chances against it are as much as for 
it." The turn of luck happened to be 
in its favor. This narrowness of mar- 
gin by which some mantiscrlpts get In 
surely explains also why some do .not 
get in. Said a young publisher dis- 
dainfully to me concerning "David 
Harum:" "Why, we send back lots of 
books better than that every year." No 
book, especlallv one by a new writer. Is 
ever exactly like any other book; pre- 
cedent is a thing, therefore, which does 
not well serve the public mood, and 
other equallv uncertain quantitbs sre to 
be weighed. These are small thing? to 
deWmlne finally, as they sometimes 
mu«t the fate of an .TUthor's work. 

I know that many manuscripts meet a 
hapless fate simply b^^cause tfiey go t3 
the wrong publisher. The author do<>a 
not understand this always. To most 
people a publishing house is a,P")l^»f^: 
Ing house and I have no doubt if the 
avorag** person were questioned as to 
the nature of books put out by varioua 
houses the gr'>ate.'>t ignorance v.'ould 
be revealed. EA-en a reader of many

Aflachas of the Engineer's 

Office Tenders Him a 

Farewell Banquet. 


Occasion of Good Fellowship 

Preceding iha Breaking 

of Long Association. 

The farewell banquet tendered Maj. 
Clinton B. Sears by the attaches of the 
United States engineer's office of Du- 
luth.lasl evening will, without doubt, 
always be a very pleasant memory with 
that officer. It was a testimonial of 
esteem, respect and good fellowship 
from the mtn whotie chief he has been 
for more than eight years. One and all 
testified to the discipline he enforces 
and , the strict performance of duty 
■which he exacts, but each testified to his 
fairness, justice ami entire impartiality 
as betweei! his men. It was an occav-ion 
of good feeling, a social meeting of the 
men and their chief as man to man 
about to be separated after a long and 
pleasant association. 

The banquet, considered from a ma- 
terial standpoint, was a very handsome 
affair. It was iserved in the blue room 
of the Spalding. The table was artisti- 
cally decoiated with ferns, red and 
"White carnations, with a handsome bowl 
of La Fr?nce roses as the centerpiece. 
The menu was tempting as the Spald- 
ing's chef could devise, and was as fol-

bers of hits lorc^ felt in entertaining him

his departure, and witshod him. on l>e-

J. H. Darling gave a review of some 
"Of the engineer work that has been done 
t)n Lake .Superior, and spoke of many of 
the former engineei'is that have been In 
charge of this settion. He «aid that the 
commerce of the lakes had srown tre- 
inendou.sly, beyond the conception of 
those who were in charge of the lakes a 
few years ago. There have been many 
places in which, had the future been 
more open to the mind, the government 
■wouM have planned larger than it did. 
He instanced Agate harbor as one case 
Avhere the progress has been greater 
than anticipated, eo that today its ca- 
Jiaeity has been reached. Among other 
things he spoke of the dredging In the 
harbor at the head of the lakes, and said 
that he thought people did not give due 
thought to what has been done in that 
respect. This ia because they cannot see 
what has been acoompli.^hed. He had 
often felt he would like to be able 
to see the entire bottom of the harbov 
Bom.etime in order to thoroughly appre- 
ciate the extent of the channels that 
have been ci»t. He paid a fine tribute to 
]Maj. Sears. 

"The Corps of Engineers" was the 
toast to which Maj. Sears wa.s asked to 
respond. He referred brielly to the ser- 
vice, and some of the men who have 
been conspicuous in it. The work of the 
corps is primarily in fortifications. They 
ere to plan the defenses of the country 
and of its seaboard. In war they get 
little of the glory, but share the danger 
and the hardships of all the men. The 
engineer must make the reconnaissance 
of the enemy's position and obtain a top- 
ographical outline of the country, and 
tie does it at the risk of being picked off 
by a shariT€hooter. Then he often has 
to build a pontoon bridige across a 
stream with the enemy shooting from 
the other side. After referring to the 
"vvork of the corps of engineers of the 
army, he paid a high tribute to the civil 
assistants of the officers, and said that 
the success which has been attained by 
an army engineer Is in large measure 
due to the excellent ap.-=istani>e rendered 
by the engineers who are In civil life. 
To them is left the carrying o)it of the 
detaiLs of the work, and upon their

faithful service the engineer officer in 
charge of work must rely. He spoke 
very highly of his cori^s of assistants in 
thivs district. He referred also to the 
force of inspectors. Upon the inspectors 
devolves the greatest of responsibility. 
If they were false to their trust they 
might enrich themselves, and possibly 
edcape detection. He would say, how- 
ever, that he could not recall a case in 
his service here in which an inspector 
had been found wanting. They are a 
faithful, ep.ergetic and not any too well 
paid set oi men, 

Maj. Sears bespoke for his successor, 
Capt. Gaillard, the same conscientiaus 
and diligent service that bad been ac- 
corded liim, and he knew ttiat it would 
be given, and he said that were Capt. 
Gaillard there he could assure him that 
he would lind no finer body of assistants 
anyvvhtjiie than would fall to him in Du- 
luih. Naturally, he would be compelled 
to rely much upon them at first because 
of his lack of familiarity with the de- 
tails of the work here, but he was en- 
tirely confident that he would find them 
able, competent and thorouglily in- 

In closing, he extended his heartfelt 
thanks for the hinor paid him in tl»e 
entertainment of the evening. It would 
always be to him a delightful memory, 
and the menu card would be preserved 
among his treasures. 

J. L. Owen, chief clerk to Maj. Sear.s, 
told something ot the excellent system 
that prevails under Maj. Sears. Ho had 
been with him in the offlce ever sinct- 
he had been hero and felt that he prob- 
ably knew more of t!!ie thorough system 
that prevails under Maj. Sears. It is 
business ahvay.«. In his dealings with 
the contractors Mr. Owen said that Maj. 
Sears has been a model olficial. He 
has carefully guarded the interests of 
the I'nited States always and yet has 
been as liberal with the contractors as 
consistency with his official duties 
would permit. There have been some 
cases where harshness would have been 
excusable, and yet he has preferred to 
be as liberal as possible and give the 
contractor every show that the interests 
of the United States would allow, and 
Mr. Owen said tSiat he knew that on 
more than one occasion the United 
States had gained by this course and 
the contractor also had been saved. 

There were a number of toasts in- 
formally re.sponded to by John Kroy, 
G. H. Marr. H. C. Bellinger, M. \V.

With Iron Haad. 


Now Sontsncsd to a Year 

in Jail For Contempt 

of Court. 

From The Herald 
Washington Bureaui 

Washington, Feb. 19.— (Special to The 
Herald.)— Alexander McKenzie, who 
was recently sentenced to one year in 
jail in San Francisco for disregarding 
the orders of the court in his capacity 
as receiver of valuable gold properties 

at Nome, Alaska, is a man with an in- 
teresting hisioiy and one which is not 
generally known, except to the old- 
time residents of North and South Da- 

The fact that this sentence was im- 
posed upon McKenzie has created some 
consternation among high officials in 
Washington and in the Dakotas. For 
many years Mr. McKenzie was the rec- 
ognized Republican boss of the terri- 
tory of Dakota, and after the separation 
and admission of the territory as twj 
states, he controlled the Republican 
party in North Dakota \> ith an iron will. 
He made governors, congressmen and 
United States .senators. His will was 
supreme usually at state conventions 
and at the session of the legislature at 
Bismarck, the state capital. Had it not 
been for the Intiuence which McKenzie 
wielded, it is not now believed that 
Senator Hansbrough would have been 
twice elected to the position he occu- 
pies in the upper branch of the national 
congress. It is said that it was 
through the instrumentality of Mc- 
Kenzie that Senators Casey and Pierce 
were first sent from North Dakota, as 
that state's representatives in the 
United States senate. It is also be- 
lieved that it was McKenzie's fine 
Italian hand that twice prevented 
former Representative Johnson from 
being elected to the senate by the North 
Dakota legislature. 

The man who is now in the Alameda 
jail in California was the official as 
well as the political power in the terri- 
tory of Dakota, and then the state of 
North Dakota for many years. He 
made his home at Bismarck, was the 
land agent of the great Northern Paci- 
fic railroad, and was classed as a multi- 
millionaire for several years. Without 
doubt, later on in his life, Mr. McKen- 
zie lost a good deal of the money tha: 
he was said to be worth during the 
boom dajs in Bismarck. At any rate, 
he later transferred his business adven- 
tures to Xew York city, meanwhile 
keeping his residence in North Dakota 
so that he could manipulate state con- 
vention.s. legi.«lature.s, and l>ring abovt 
the election of men favorable to his in- 
terests, to seats in the United States 
congress, and as governors of the stat^, 
and dictate the appointees of these gov- 
ernors. This made McKenzie, as It 
will readily be seen, a powerful factor, 
not only in Noith Dakota, but for some 
years prominent in othclal circles in 
New York city. His last business ven- 
ture at Nome has brought about his 
business and political downfall. 

McKenzie is an uneducated man. He 
came to North Dak(jta as a section 
hand on the Northern Pacific railroad 
when that road was being built from St. 
Paul to the West coast. In tni.^ re- 
spect he differed little in the start of 
life from James J. Hill, now one of the 
greatest railroad magnates In the world. 
Mr. Hill, as Is pretty generally kno\\ n. 
began his career in the Northwest a:^ ;i 
"roustabout" on one of the Missis.sippl 
river steamers, when St. Paul was the 
head of navigation on this river. It Is 
not necessary to point out that Mr. Hili 
has made a greater success in life than 
Mr. McKenzie. While Mr. McKenzie 
is in jail In California, Mr. Hill is tak- 
ing a party on a private yacht to vari- 
ous points of interest on the globe and 
will be absent from this country- about 
the length of time it will take for Alex- 
ander McKenzie to serve out his ;en- 
tence in jail.

Kid Consul Lati of Protorla. 

New York. Feb. 19.— Consul Adelbert 
Hay is receiving a warm welcome from 
friends In London, says the Tribune's 
London correspondents. He is modest and 
reticent and talks like an honest neutral 
who has done his work with strict Impar- 
tiality. He distrihuteJ -kiuO letters among 
the British prisoners and arranged money 
remittances t<>r them, yet ccmmanded the 
respect nf Prosident Kruger, Reitz and the 
Boer officials, and' when he left Pretoria 
received the honor of a farewill from a 
dozen burghers. On the other hand, his 
relations with Gens. Roberts and Kitch- 
ener were most friendly and the 
prisoners were grateful for his tlmeiy 
sevlces. He refers In the kindest terms io 
the leaders on each side and avoids any 
displav of parti.sanship. Mr. Hay will 
spend a fortnight quietly in London and 
on the continent before sailing for Amer- 


Uso of Malmtd Limb RecoTtnd 
Tlir«u|li Another Injury. 

Waterbury, Conn., Fob. 1;<.— After be- 
ing a helpless crli»le for nine years as 
the result of^an n*cld*^t received in his 
childhood. Henry Sewlch, aged 14 years, 
had the use of his limbs restored at Union 
City a few days ago. Sewich was coast- 
ing with several comt»anlons. The boys 
ware using a double rtpper, and the 
steersman losing control, the sled was 
hurl'?d against a tree. 

Sewich's miiined limb received ih-? 
brunt of the blow and was at first thought 
to bo dangerously injured. On Thursday, 
however, the Injured leg began to 
straighten, and it waa notetl that partial 
cantrol was returning, yesterday the boy 
had so far recovered that he was able to 
walk about with the aid of a eane. It Is 
tliought by phv.slcians who have exam- 
ined the l)oy s limb that in a short time 
its full power will be reetored. 

Pekln, Feb. 19.— The foreign envoys 
have given the Chinese authoritie.s

Nfty-Pauncefote Treaty. 


Hr. Ghoate Doee Hot Know 

What the Diiflcully 

Will Be. 

New York. Feb. 19.— A despatch to the 
Journal and Adverliser from London 
says: Ambassador Choate has received 
instructions from Washington to i-rrt^s 
upon the British government the neces- 
sity for immediate action upon the 
Hay-Pauncofote treaty. Mr. Choate 
will call upon Lord Lansdowna and tell 
him the United States expects a (deci- 
sion on the treaty before M:irch 4. Mr. 
Choate has been informed, unoflicially, 
of course, of the disposition of tLe 
United States senate to repeal the Clay- 
ton-Buiwer treaty and pass ihe Nica- 
ragua canal bill if the pending treaty le 
not accepted. And he will also, unoffi- 
cially, tell the secretary of state for 
foreign affairs Just what the situation 

in the senate is. He has received no in- 
timation of any sort from the British 
government as to what the diinculty 
will lie, but there is good reason for 
saying that England is inclined to tem- 
orarize, feeling that by delay, and, per- 
haps, by alternative sugge.stions sihe 
may obtain some modification of the 
terms of the treaty it.self or some set- 
off against what she considers her con- 

Ambassador Choate's Instructions 
from Washington are imperative and 
he will make Lord Lansdowne realize 
that whatever he intends lo Jo he iiiaf^t 
do it quickly. 


Strong Proteet Against Pass- 
age of Korth Dakota 
Medical Bill. 

Bismarck— Dozens of petitions were pre- 
sented in the senate asking that the state 
medical association bill be not passed un- 
less amended to permit Christian Scien- 
tists, faith curisls and osteopaths to 
practice. The medical men decline lO 
make further conceL-sions and the matter 
will have to be foujrht out in the legisla- 
ture. Tlie public health conimltl.-e rcpyrt- 
ed the bill with some amendments and 
after some delay it went iMiOk lo liie com- 
mittee again. 

Jamestown— Mrs. William Wentland, of 
Melville, expired suddenly in Juinestown 
while pri'Daring to take a train for her 
home. She was here to consult physicians 
who gave her no encouragement and ad- 
vised her to return lo Melville. She was 
61 years of age and was the mother of 
nine ihildren, one >>f whom is an Advent 
missionary in Minneapolis. 

Grand Forks— Harry Katzenmeyer wa.'^ 
arrested in Bemldjl iate Saturday night, 
and was brought here Sunday night to 
answer to the charj^es of foigt^ry and 
tampering with the mails. It is (harmed 
that he obtained from the postofTice in 
East Grand F< rk.i a letter addressed to 

C. Schocuheid and took from It a money 
order for .519..'iO, which he cashed at a sa- 
loon, forging the owner's name thereto. 

Dan McDonald, of Milton, who has been 
working in a lumub* r camn near Stdway 
for Blakeley & Farley, came in on the 
Duluth train Saturday night with a weil- 
developed case of smallpox. 

The largest meeting of business men 
ever held In the state will be held here 
on Tur-.sday, Wednesday and Thursday ot 
this week, heing the annual convention 
of the retail grocer.s, retail hardware men 
and implement dealers of North Dakota. 
The meetings havf bet n widely advertised, 
and a large attendance is expected from 
ail sections of the state. 

,Larimore— This state was visited by one 
of the worst storms of the season Satur- 
day night and Sunday. About four iiuhes, 
of snow fell. Ill the western portion of the 
state the storm is Wi)r3e. Trains were 
delayed on the Dakota division. 

Arlington— A meteor fell near this place 
about midnight Sunday. liKhting the hea- 
vens as light as day for a minute. A re- 
port was heard like the roar of severcl 
cannon discharged in immediate succes- 
sion for about live minutes. The meteor 
which passed over here is supposed to 
have fallen a few miles west ot Bruce. S. 

D. The light wes extremely bright and 
the explosion was so great that It rattled 
dishes and put out lamps. A bearch will 
be made for the meteor. 

Fort Meade— There is no further doubt 
but that this fort will become a perma- 
nent government institution. The order 
Issued recently making the fort headquar- 
ters for the Thirteenth cavalry and one 
battery of artillery has made a great de- 
mand for horses. Nearly KXW head more 
will be needed, and it is thought they will 
be procured from the Black Hills rtingcs. 

Huron— At a meeting of the city cjTncIl 
sfps were taken for securing a detei.tion 
hospital; prevalence of contagioit* 
In near-by towns has put people on 
guard, and the board of health of this 
place, together with the council auii city 
officials, are on the lo<»kout and any per- 
.son suspected of being affected, or e.x- 
posed to small pox or other contagious 
diseases, will be promptly quarantined. 
Strict regulations will be observed. 

Deadwood— Meade county has just paid 
Into the treasury of Lawrence county »24,- 
000. which was the portion of the old bond- 
ed Indebtedness that the county Inherited 
irom Liwrence county at the time of the 
segregation of the county. The money 
was turned over immediately by the treas- 
.irer of Lawrence county to the holder^ of 
the 10 per cent bonds, which were given 
over twenty-two years ago. 

Aberdeen- Mrs. Smith, wife of Rev. W. 
H. Smith, died Saturday at Columbia 
after a short Illness of the grip. She was 
75 years of age. 


New York Sun: '•Judge M'illiam T'nder-

Adamson, of Georgia, the other day. "He 
spoke the truth on everj- occasion. His

idea in the way of an electrically driven 
machine, wtiicn the Lumberman believes 
i.« demanded by the needs of the time. 
The idea i.« not exactly new in the sense 
that the loggers have not before consid- 
ered the idea of making use of eleo- 
tricitj- iu£-tead of the more cumbersome 
steam machines that are now generally 
used, though they are great labor-.saving 
m.u bines, but the trouble has been in 
finding a man that could devise a 
scheme that would make the use of 
electricity practical and show how it 
could be obtained as a power without 
too great a 'ost. The steam maihine 
now used in felling and cutting trees in 
many localities is effif lent. but. us has 
been said before, is rather cumber.^ome, 
and co£tly to operate, in.ismuch as its 
radius of actlm is a very limited on^ 
at ono settin? of the boiler. The nrethod 
u«ed in to londuct the steam from the 
boiler by steam hose to a steam cylrnd-r 
driving the saw. There is, of course, 
more or less lops of steam from cond-n- 
cation in the hose, and tiie boiler must 
be moved after cutting every few trees. 
The Lumberman says: 

••\n electrically driven device, how- 
could have a more or less per- 
manint station established in a conven- 
ient locality for development of the 
prwer. perhaps along the logging road, 
from which bv wires the power could 
be taken over a radius of a mile or

more without difficulty or material 
liss. Ttien all there would be at the 
point of ojieration would be th<; electrical 
motor driving the saw. This whole 
mechanism shoubl not be heavier than 
the steam sawing device spoken of 
above. If such a device has been per- 
fected, the Lunibernian has not been 
informed of it. and it would suggest to 
manufacturers of sawmill macoinory 
the designing and manufacture of a 
complete equipment for this purpose. 

•It is suggested by one manufacturer 
that such an appliance would be adapt- 
ed only to a heavy growth of timber, 
but it seem? pnbable that it could be 
madi- .<uflii.-iently portable sj that a very 
ordinary stand— of. say. only 5000 or 4000 
feet to the acre — rould be more econ- 
omicallv handled in that way than as at 
present" Steam skidding and logging

Charles Stewart Fills One 

Hundred Feet at the New 

Steel Elevatcr. 

Vfcter on the Great Norih-rn iiew 
elevator in West STjporior, came to his 
death yesterday by falling aboat sixty 
feet and breakiiig his neck. Ho le.ivt s 
a wife. The buildir.g oi this immense 
steel struct'.Mt . the largest of iis kind 
in the wor'd. has b^T-M at'.<Mided by a 
greai'^r loss .->' life than has oe.-u/n'Hl in 
the erection of any oth-^r two buildings 
at the head of the lake. Since c.-n- 
Ptruetion of the elevator was begun, 
over a year ago. not less 'han Tiv;> men 
have bV-en killed. In each caso the 
men eame to their death in fallincr, one 
man falling over 100 feet. Ka.-a man 
that was killed, with ix)ssibly one ex- 
<epfion. was a riveter by trade and 
pearly all left families. The riv ler's 
work is regarded as especially danger- 
ous and the men often work for hours 
^veticg in place the outside plates of 
the elevator when a single mi.step or an 
overbalancing nie.u:t thHir iia^hing to 
4eath many fc't V>elow. Besides the five 
men that were killed theie have het-n 
innumerable narrow escap^x-; and some 
of the workmei havn sustained severe 
Injuries in having their limbs pinched 
under large steel plates. 


"It is strange that somelning of this 
.sort has not been put on the market 
before this. It is the only missing link 
in the ihain of mechanical operatl-^ns 
for the conversion of standing timber 
into lumber. Logs are taken .from the 
woods to the railroad or to a water 
cour.^e bv steam: if to a railroad, they 
are loaded on the cars by steam power, 
transported bv steam to the mill, taken 
into the mill by steam and imt thmugh 
all the processes from there to the car 
on whieh thev are shipped, with very 
«li!;ht pxpenditur? of muscular power 
on the part of human beings. The fell- 
ing cf the timber and cutting of the 
trees into 1 >e:s are. however, still done 
as of old with an ax and saw." 

Flowers of speech used in after din- 
ner oratoo' at a bar banquet would look 
aa withered as the last rose of summer 
in a hot kitchen, compared with the 
garlands of ponderous rococco rhetoinc 
tossed at the legal profession by Alder- 
man James Cromwell last evening. With 
that indefinite and indefinable grace of 
expression which some people vaguely 
call soul, the alderman from the Third 
ward paid the profession the followmg 
tribute, while discussing an ordinance to 
garnishee the salaries of city employes: 

••If we paus this ordinance it will bene- 
fit no one but a lot of shyster lawyers, 
who ought to be in states prison. They 
Would ."imply use this as a means of 
harrassing honest men to death. If city 
employtis don't pay their debts, I would 

favor discharging them, providing 
proper complaint is made through tiie 
department in which they are employed, 
but I am opposed to have the council do 
anything that would l>enefit the two-for- 
a-cent logues that are practicing law at 
the expense of honest men that are d'j- 
ing their best to juake a living and give 
their ihildren a proper education. I 
dont believe there is a man employed 
by the city who is a professional dead- 
beat, and if there should be, garnish- 
ment would not make them honest. On 
the contrary, garnishee laws make men 
dishonest — men will seek dishonest 
means to get out, and I don't know but 
what they ought to, because a man's 
family stands tirst and should be looked 

Notwithstanding this, the garniishee 
ordinance was I'asseiJ. and in the de- 
bate, which was rather brisk and breezy, 
it was set ftirth that there was in the 
employ of the city a man that had not 
paid his milkman for three years. 

The ordinance was part of the general 
round-up of old business which is being 
cleared from the table before the new 
council is inaugurated. It was first in- 
trodui-ed last November, and was side- 
tracked, but last evening Alderman 
Krumsieg called it up and succeded in 
getting it through on a vote of 12 to 3. 

In replying to Alderman Cromwell, 
Alderman Krumsieg said that no honest 
city employe should fear garniiihment, 
and Alderman Cochrane said that it was 
one of the best ordinances ever intro- 
duceil in the council. 

About the only other feature of the 
meeting was the discovery of a new 
street paving material by Alderman 
Cochrane. It Is Portland cement. 

The list of materials suggested for 
paving Superior street ii? now something 
like this: Good intentions, sheet as- 
phalt, sandstone, block asphalt, creosote 
blocks, vitrified brick, granite, cedar 
blocks, macadam, tar-macadam and 
Portland cement. 

The beard of public works was in- 
structed to have the city engineer make 
an t»jtimate of the cost of having the 
Lake avenue viaduct paved with creo- 
sote blocks. 

The board of fire commis.sioners was 
given authority to have plans and speei- 
fications prepared for a new fire hall at 
Se.-ond street and Fourteenth avenue 
east, providing it could be without ex- 
pense to the city. 

The municij^al labor bureau ordinance 
was so amended that it t<houid not lie 
necessary to have a member of the 
bureau commission appointtxi from the 

The report of F. W. Cappelen on the 
cost of five propositions to furnish the 
city with electricity for street lighting 
purposes was reported and ordered 
printed in the oflicial proceeding-s. 

A. LeRicheux and T. S. Boyd were 
employed as expert accountants to go 
over the books of the city officers to see 
that everything was correct. 

Walter Thompson, who was city clerk 
for a month last spring notified the 
council that <luring that time he rc- 
(•eived $104.33 in fees under the provisions 
of the old charter, but since that time 
it has been determined by the eourts 
that he was working under the new 
charter, and should have received $135 
in salary. He. therefore, asked the city 
to reimburse him to the extent of $31. 




Amtrican Lumberman Thinks it 
Ouglit io Bi Used In the Woods. 

The wonderful progress that has been 
made in the invention of labor-saving 
machines and for the purpose of adding 
Inci-eascd facilities for increasing the 
lumber output of the country has been 
a matter of considerable remark of late. 
and nowhere else in the lumber dis- 
tricts of the country hate tne innova- 
tions been adopted to a greater extent 
than in logging and lumber districts cf 
Northwestern Wi.sconsin and Northern 
Minnesota. The demand for lumber and 
the necessity of getting out the largest 
amount of tinibtr with the least pos- 
sible expenditure of ni'mey and in as 
fiiort a time as possible has early in- 
lluenced the logging operators of the 
Northwi^st to keep in the front rank in 
the adojition of new ideas. In its la!=t 
issue the American Lumbei man speaks 
of the important improve.ments that 
have been made in the last few years m 
logging methods, and introduces a new

Christian Chinese Celebrate 
It at the First Presby- 
terian Church. 

The Christian Chinamen of Duluth 
celebrated the Chinese New Year at the 
First Presbyterian church last night, 
and the celebration was a very unique 
and interesting event. The entertain- 
ment was held in the Sunday school 
rooms of the church, and a large audi- 
ence heard it. 

The day is always celebt-ated by the 
Chinese in this country, but these 
Chinamen who have pas.-ed up the doc- 
trines of Confucius and adopted instead 
those of the meek and lowiy Nazarene, 
observed it in a new way last night. 
There were twent>-two- of them that 
took part in the performance, all 
dressed in becoming suits of dark cloth. 
They occupied the fropt seats, near the 
organ, the guests of the evening occu- 
l)ving the remaining seits. 

"a gospel hymn, in which the entire 
assemblage assist *kI. opened the pro- 
gram, after which S. E. Webb, superin- 
tendent of the Chinese Sunday school, 
ma<le a few apt remarks. 

Hor Coon recdted the :; '.!hJ Psalm, after 
which Hor (ling gave the third chapter 
of St. John. Charlie Choy recited the 
twenty-third chapter. 

All of the Celestials ioined in singing 
"Nearer Mv C.)d, to Thee" in Chinese. 
Hi>r Foii recited the 23r 1 Psalm. Oeorge 
Lee gave the Beatitude^ in English, and 
Char Wan gave them in Chinese. Willie

Man.v people ha\<' lie.-n interested In 
the reports of persons made ill by coffee 
drinking and cured by quitting and 
using Postum Food Coffee. Of course, leaving off cf the poison of ciffee by 
highly organized people whose s.vstema 
are affected by it is a great help In itself, 
but the biggest end of the help is in the 
elements furnished by Postum Food 
Coffee. This is a true food drink of ttie 
highest character. 

A lady who has never b'-en addicted 
to tea or coffee drinking was reduced 
by stoihach trouble to a condition of 
nervous prostration with heart trouble, 
insomnia, and finally got in such a weak 
condition that the doctors said she could 
not get well, and it was t*iought she 
would live but a short time. 

Someone brought Postum Food Coffee 
to her attention : she quit taking medi- 
cine and went to using Po.stum. She 
says. "It did not sour on my stomach 
and I began to feel better at once. I 
kept on using it day after day and now 
am well and strong and have better 
health than I have had for ye^rs. and am 
most sincerely thankful t'lat Postum 
Food C >ffee was invented and I was led 
to use it." 

This is a direct evidence of the fact 
that h.!s so often been stated that Pos- 
tum is a nourishing food drink contain- 
ing the elements of phosphate of potash 
and albumen that go to build up the 
gr.^y matter in fie nerve cells in the 
brain and all over the body. It does 
not ccntaln medicine of any sort or kind, 
only the elements placed in the cereals 
of the field by the .\lmighty Creator, 
and selected and made use of in the 
form of a liquid food by the Inventor. 

• My husband is a grorer and has be?n 
->ut of health for some time past. Sin. e 
he fias f'"und what Pe?tum has done for 
me he has quit drinking coffe" and been 
using Postum for quite a little time. 
He has improved greatly: sleeps well 
ni.ght.'-. and says he has given up coffe..-

Removal of Minneiota Com- 
pany Purchasing Depart- 
ment to Dulutb. 

The removal of the purchasing de- 
partmont of the Minnesota lion com- 
pany from Chicago to Duluth, an- 
nounced by The Herald last night, is a 
matter of a good deal of importance t) 
thp merchants of this city, as might bo 
imagined. The department will do the 
purchasing not only for the Minnesota 
mine, but for all of the mines under the 
control of the Minnesjta Iron company, 
as well as for the Duluth & Iron Range 
railroad. ^ ^, ,, 

In the past very little of tbe supplies 
needed for the mines have been pur- 
chased in Duluth. With the purchasing 
department in Chicago, it has. of course, 
been more convenient in many cases to 
buy the necessary supplies elsewhere. 
Now that it is located hero, the Duluth 
merchants will have the first chance at 
the business. wh>ch includes a very large 
variety of articles, from provisions and 
meats, hay and feed, to machinery and 
hardware. jj.i. , 

In the course of a year the additional 
«um expended in Dulutb will be a very 
important item, and there is Httl. ques- 
tion that the merchants whom this will 
benefit are indebted »" P'-*'«'*|:;"^,J- J,"-

United Siafee PreseIng Hard 

For First Place In Silic 


Washington, Feb. 19.— According to Con- 
sul Covert at Lyons, an article upon the 
silk industry of the world recently pub- 
lished in a French trade paper, shows that 
the I'nited States is likely to lake the 
lead among the silk producers of the 
world. During the last threo years the 
consumption of raw silk in the I'nited 
States has exceeded that of h'Yaiice. The 
trade paper says that the pnxlucing power 
of the rnitcd States has e<jualled that of 
of France since lSt7 and "American manu- 
facturers has a power of expannioii that 
ours docs not j>o.«sess." Statistics show 
that the silk Industry is growinp and ex- 
teiidins and that more people are wearing 
t^ilk than overv before. According to the 
French authority alre.idy referred to, 
France hoaiL" the list of producers and the 
I'nited States of America is pressing hard 
for the first place. 

In a report to the state department on 
the ribbon trade of fft. Ktlenne. Consul 
Brunot .says: "Just as surely as American 
iron products — hrldgos. machinery. etc. 
—have found a permanent market In Eu- 
rope, so will American silks and other tex- 
tile poods; and the time has almost ar- 
rive<l." ^ 

Imitations of American goods in Sweden 
are doing great harm to the American 
trai'e. says Consul nersch at Gothenburg 
In a report to the state department. He 
says that inferior forks are sold by whole- 
sale la Gothenburg as .Vmerican product, 
at a price much lower than tho genuine 
American fork— of which It is a poor Imi- 
tation— is offered. That Is only one sample 
of the nviny German Imitations offored for 
sale in Sweden and reported to be "best 
•American goods," the effect is that the 
buyers soon discover that th« y have 
bought articles not worth the money and 
blame the American manufacturers.

ple story like that have a mock modesty 
and the chances are would go to plays of 
the "Sapho" type and read French novels 
and think nothing of it. When Mr. Peters' 
attention was called to the matter he said: 
"If any woman took ofrense at any inno- 
cent story of Lincoln's, I am quite 
sure that the same woman would 
appear In a public place In a 
dress so Immodest that a mod- man would not know what to do with 
his eyes. Very many prudes are often 
lacking in nobler qualities and are most 
frequently the sham instead of the real 
thing. The word 'stink' is only good Eng-

have said the skunk smelled, but it didn't. 
You smell. It stinks is good English." 
While perhaps the reverend gentleman

his story, the ladles were far more so in 
acting as they did in the matter.

Dominion government has made all ar-

office department. In pursuing this policy 
the Canadians will only be followlnR the 
example of the parent government .u 
Great Britain, which for many 1.;.;, 
conducted the telegraph as a branch o. .t» 
postal sorivce. One of the principal ob- 
jects aimed at in promoting governmonl 
ownership of t.legraphi^ in Canada is to 
satisfy the general desire to have trans- 
oceanic communication by cables owneu 
by Great Britain under both the Atlantic 
and the Paiiiic and joined at eaoh ena 
by wires owned by the Dominion crossing

Great Northwestern Telegraph company 
and the Canadian Pacific Railway com-

Canada has a capital of $5,000,(XjO, so that

The ship subsidy bill is dead. The 
first and only beloved child of Boss 
Hanna is dead. The poor thing never 
saw the light, but died "a-bornln." " 
The Republicans as a party refused to 
assist at its natal ceremony, and it had 
to go the way of all the worid. There 
is mourning now in the Prye-Hanna- 
Payne-family. There is sorrow, too, in 
the hearts of ship companies. The vision 
of $9,000,000 a year that was so bright 
when the session of congress opened 
proved to be a mirage — it has vanisSied. 
The thDusands of good hard dollars that 
were spent to keep up the literary 
bureau and the lobby must be charged 
to profit and loss — principally loss. 
There is some profit, however. They 
will know better next time. The senate 
is the whole thing, but Hanna does not 
happen to be the senate. He thought he 
was, and so did his friends who planned 
witfi him the capture of the $9,000,000. 

The bill was killed by public senti- 
ment. There never was a scheme bet- 
ter planned nor a legislative campaign 
better managed, but the press was 
against the measure because it had no 
merit. A more brazen attempt to steal 
by law was never made in the United 
States senate. This the Republican press 
knew, and notwithstanding the pressure 
of party bosses, the press, with a voice 
that was almost unanimous, denounced 
the bill. 

The strength of the Hanna-Payne or- 
ganization was so great that at one time 
it came very near forcing the measure 
on the party. Had this been done, not- 
withstanding the opposition of the press, 
the bill would have passed the senate, 
but could not have run the gauntlet of 
the house with the tremendous popular 
opposition against it. The good news of 
the practical death of the ship subsidy 
bill is somewhat offset by the announce- 
ment that Spooner of Wisconsin has 
secured the right-of-way for the Grout 
oleomargarine bill, a measure less im- 
portant that the shipping bill but not 
less infamous. This bill, without equity 
or merit to recommend it. passed the 
house and was recommended by the 
agricultural committeee of the senate. 

There have been many attempts to kill 
a foreign industry for the benefit of a 
home cincern by making the people pay 
for the job in an increased rate of taxa- 
tion, but tfiis is the first attempt ever 
made in this country to kill off one home 
industry that another may have a mon- 
opoly of the market and squeeze the 
consumer. The Grout bill i.s the acme 
of the protective and trust evil combined 
in one nefarious bill. The general effect 
on the community will not be great, 
but as a precedent for future legislation 
it is worse than the Hanna shipping 

So carefully and so thoroughly has the 
dairy combine worked the ground that 
a congressman dare not vote against the 
bill if there be a dozen dairymen in his 
district. The same pressure was brought 
on the state legislatures, and ttilrty-two 
of the state legislatures found it ex- 
pedient to petition the United States 
senate to pass this bill. It was a feat 
of successful log-rolling that ought to 
place the cow men In the first rank of 

The Grout bill, however, is not through 
yet. A fight will be made on principle, 
and if it should go over this session, it 
will be as dead as Hanna's pet. Ship 
subsidy is a dead Issue. The next thing 
to do is to repeal our absurd navigation 
laws. To Senator Teller of Colorado 
is due the final blow that laid out the 
Hanna boodle scheme. His announce- 
ment that he would not let it come to a 
vote this term was the death sentence. 

Boers. For centuries the Cubans had 
acknowledged the authority of Spain 
and when we Intervened they were in 
rebellion against their lawful sovereign. 
The Boers were never under British do- 
minion—that is a war of conquest with- 
out even a diplomatic excuse. 

The time has come for intervention, 
but, unfortunately for the United States, 
it is pursuing the same kind of a war, 
with perhaps less brutality. We as a 
nation must remain silent, but France, 
with large African interests, should 
take the initiative, and the sentiment of 
the civilized world would be with her. A 
united effort on the part of France and 
Russia would stop the war. France did 
this once — it was years ago— but that 
act stands out as one of the brightest 
in French history. 

It is useless to moralize on a matter 
that is beyond remedy — it is useless to 
find fault with fate, but to see Great 
Britain and the United States, the two 
greatest Christian nations on the globe, 
nations wliose very cornerstone is indi- 
vidual and political liberty, engaged 
each in a war to subjugate a weak, but 
liberty-loving people, is a sight to mak.; 
angels weep. But the chase is on, the 
dogs of war are loosed, and the hunters 
will not wind the horn until the game 
is run to earth. 

Uncompromising tyranny has two 
servants ready and willing to do its 
bidding, Weyler the "Spanish blood- 
hound" and Kitchener, the "English 
bulldog." They differ but little in na- 
ture — their methods are identical. 

Here is another outrage porpretrated by 
the tyrant Man. In a case tried in Chi- 
cago the jur>- rendered a verdict In favor 
of the plaintiff for $14,850, in consequenco 
of evidence given chiefly by women, an I 
the judge set the verdict aside saying: 
"I am averse to accepting the decision of 
the jury as final in this case, especially 
so as that decision was based largely ui'On 
the testimony of women. The testimony 
pf one written document is of more 
weight as evidence than the oral testi- 
mony of a doz€<n witnesses, particularly 
when women are concerned as witnesses. 
Though women are undoubtedly upon a 
higher moral piano than are men, th^y 
are not as reliable ui>on the 
stand. It seems that women are of a 
more imaginative nature than men, ani, 
though it is no doubt unintentional, laey 
come to believe ao true what liiey at 
first only Imagine and maintain their be- 
lief in spite of all evidence against it. ' 

A new danger has arisen in the wear- 
ing of the high collar so popular among 
a certain class of young men, especially 
in tho East. In New York the other day 
a young man fell while crossing Lennox 
street, and" those who hastened to his as- 
sistance found that he was bleeding pro- 
fusely from a wound In the neck. An 
ambulance waS called by a policeman, 
who was told that the young man had 
been run over by a car. On ils arrival the 
surgeon made an examination and found 
that the victim had been cut by his high 
collar, it has always been a matter of 
wonder that some of the aesthetic young 
men have not an ear or two by a sud- 
den upward movement of tiielr high neck- 
bands, but the danger of cutting their 
throats Is one of more concern. 

little more rtfined in her language. It

As a result ^f tl^ prevailing prosperity, 
estimates of , tho number of tramps in

to 100,000. 

Now that they have Mrs. Nation locked

serve to illustrate that 

fact. An incident in New York last week 
serves to show the peculiarities of the fe- 
male mind. It was at the Lincoln dinner 
•< the I'nion League club and the Rev. 
Madison C Petcrd told a story about a 
skunk that so offendefl th# ladies, who 
were as usual present in the galleries, 
that they turned their backs on the emin- 
ent divine and hurriedly left the biiild- 
Inar. There was a much larger number of 
ladles present than usual on account of 
the presence of Minister Wu and all were 
very much interested in the Lincoln stor- 
ies as told by Dr. Peters until he came to 
the skunk story. The story to which ref- 
erence is made is as follows: President 
Lincoln once replied to a deputation ask- 
ing him to change the entire cabinet be- 
cause he had retired Gen. Cameron from 
the war department. "Gentlemen, your 
request reminds me of a story I once heard 
In Illinois of a farmer who was much trou- 
bled with skunkfs. One moonlight night he 
loaded his old shotgun and stationed him- 
self in the back yard to watch for the in- 
truders. After some time his wife heard 
the shotgun go off and In a few minutes 
the farmer entered the hou.-:e. 'What luck 
had you?' said she. 'I hid myself behind 
the woodpile, "sitid the old man, 'and be- 

fore long there appeared not one skunk.

The hopes that were entertained by 
all lovers of justice and peace that Ed- 
ward VII, on his accession to the throne, 
would immortalize himself by seeking 
some means to restore peace in South 
Africa; that he would endeavor to undo 
to some extent the wrongs inflicted upon 
a people whose only crime is a love of 
liberty, have vanished into thin air. It 
was thought that despite his past life 
Edward might attempt to rule instead 
of assent to reign. But what is bred in 
the bone will come out in the flesh. Ed- 
ward will never he king, except in name. 
His speech from the throne settled th ? 
question of the king's status in the Brit- 
ish government and showed that the 
Camlierlain policy of extermination 
would be followed in Africa until Brit- 
ish dominion is acknowledged or the 
country turned into a desert. 

If the reports be true, and we ought 
not to doubt them as they come from 
British sources. Gen. Kitchener is fol- 
lowing the exact tactics employed by 
the inhuman Weyler in Cuba. Burning 
farms and villages and driving women 
and children like cattle to corrals to he 
kept on starvation rations, because 
husband and father is fighting for home 
and country, is the enlightened policy 
adopted by this South African Weyler. 
Two years ago the civilized world, in- 
cluding England, held up its hands in 
horror at such a mode of warfare prac- 
ticed in Cuba, and three months later 
the military strength of the United 
States was employed to relieve the suf- 
fering Cubans. "Are the cases parallel? 
Strikingly so. There is a difference. 

New York is the mr-sl expensively gov-

to be a narrow-minded bod> by it-^ aciion 
In refusing to exempt from taxation Uie 
real estate in the Summer Resort stats

club." It is rather strange that a legis- 
lature should be called narrow-minded 
because it refuses to exempt property 
from taxation. Instead of being criti- 
cised, the legislature should be commend- 
ed. There should be no exemption from 
taxation. Let ail property be taxwl fairly

Miss Susan B. Anthony says that Mrs. 
Nation has no kick coming on the way the 
saloon laws have been enforced in Kansas. 
Since 1S.S7 in that state Mrs. Nation and all 
the women in the cities have had the riKht 
to vote for the mayor and all municipal 
officers, and Miss Anthony says it was 
their duty to see that men were elected 
who would enforce the laws, and If they 
did not do It, to remove them and replace 
them with men who would. "The hatchet 
is the weapon of barbarism, the ballot is 
the one weapon of civilization, " says Miss 
Anthony. And she is right. 

King Edward has had a tip given quietly 
to his former fast associates that tho 
prince of Wales no longer exists. There 
will be no more gay country house parties; 
no more bacarrat crowas and no more

for the king. He cannot accept any more 
private invitations, and only those pre- 
sented to the court In the regular way 
will be recognized. Eilward promises that

Says the Pdrtland Telegram: "On the 
same principle that, under a new law, a 
tombstone dealer can take away a 
tombstone after It is erected. If it is not 
paid for, why should not the dentists 
have a Hen on teeth that they have filled, 
so that If a patient did not pay his bill a 
dentist could require the sheriff to hold 
the delinquent while the tooth doctor ex- 
tracted his filled tooth? " 

What is the reason that Gen. MacAi*-

It probable that the authorities don't dare

Philadelphia Times: The Chinese have 
had the impudence to suggest that the 
treasure whieh the forces of c'vilizaiion 
have looted at Pekin ^hail be r'jckoncd in 
abatement of the -i-minity demanded. 
The foreign ministers rejiot this proposi- 
tion with coniumel.> . The pc vers, they 
say, have been at the cost of sending 
their burglars a lo-ng distance and they 
must have their expenses paid, without 
regard to the probts of the burglary. 
Othwwise they will take anything there 
may be left and keep possession of the 
house as further secuiity. 

The mistake of the Chinese has been ad 
along in supposing that they had any 
rigiiis in China. The great powers arc 
not even agreed that the Chinese have a 
right to live, thouf^i they all agree that 
ihev have no.'rlt.'ht to keep anything 
that the foreisroers! want. Those of thtSi 
who have alterauted to defend their 
homes, and were not killed in the at- 
tempt, must l)e put to death or other- 
wise punished. noMt and the rest must 
give up their property and crawl in the 
dust at the f^et qf the Europeans. On 
those conditions the beneficent i)owers 
will allow the Chin*'se emperor to return 
to his citpital. of ^liich. however, they 
will retain thq, military control. 

Having alreardv Agreed to do all that 
tke pewers defhand. the Chinese envoys 
have politelr ksked to bo informed when 
the powers ars-.going to leave off killing 
and looting. The German minister, we 
are told, "dis*appr*\*es of the tone and

E. Allen FVost in Chicago Tribune: To 
the taxpayers the finances of the city of 
Chicago are a Chinese puzzle. In the face 
of constantly Increasing tax collections 
the growing poverty of the city govern- 
ment is regarded by the properly owner 
as an Indication of Inefficient administra- 
tion of the city's moneys. The comptroller 
repeatedly Is criticised for a condition 
which arises from the system, not from 
the practical workings of the government. 
It is not generally understood that the 
cliy of Chicago performs seven-tenths oi! 
the work done within its limits with three- 
tenths of the revenue. To this fact may be 
attributed the straitened condition in 
which the council and the city officials 
find the city treasury on the eve of a new 
fiscal year. Until this condition is reme- 
died relief cannot be obtained. 

There are great inequalities in taxi^licu 
in this city. That the total burden of ta.v- 
aiion in Chicago for all purposes Is high 
in proportion to the taxation in oilier 
cities is by no means established. It Is 
not the intention to make a comparison 
with the rates of taxation and tlie 
amounts of taxation in other cities^ but 
it may be said that the total rate and llie 
total amount of taxation levied upon liie 
property and the people of the cit.>' of 
Chicago are much less in proportion than 
in other large cities of the Lnited Stales. 
The total tax levy in 1888 amounted to 
$14,681,04'J.4.}, and in 185>9 the total taxes 
had increased to $24,675,601.23. being an in- 
crease of 68 per centum and an amount of 
$9,&'J4,360.7S. out of the taxes of 18S« the 
city of Chicago realized for corpora^- pur- 
poses in actual cash $3,132,000, or 21.31 per 
centum of the total levied. Out of tiie 
taxes of lSi)9 the city realized In cash for 
coipoiule purposes 54,221,904.37, or 1"11 per 
centum of the total levied. 

The following table shows the compari- 
son of the area, population, taxes and cash 
for eorportiie purposes of the years 18SS 
and IMK) in the city of Chicago: 

Per cent 

Items 1888. 19t>0. inc. 

Area, sq. milea 36.6 190.6 4iO 

Population 802,651 1.698,575 110 

Taxes, Cook 

county $14,681,040.45 $24,675,601.23 68 

Cash for corpor 
ate uses .... 3,132.760.43 4,221.904.37 35 
Thus in the period during which there 
has been an Increase of 68 per cent in gen- 
eral taxation, the city of Chicago has only 
received an advance of 35 per cent. In the 
meantime the population has Increased 110 
per cent and the area of the city 420 per 
cent, yet the city government is expected 
to care for this greatly enlarged territoiy 
and population with only $1.(189.143.94 more 
than it did in 1888. It has been a period ol 
unparalleled advancement in all lints. 
Improvements that will stand for score:> 
of years have been constructed from the 
funds, which have Increased so slowly. 
The income of the city for corporate pur- 
poses in 1S88 was 21.33 per centum of me 
total tax levy. In 1899 the percentage de- 
creased 4.22 making it 17.11 per centum of 
the total tax levy, as against 21. '53 i)er 
centum in 1888. Frorj this it should be 
perfectly pllaiD to the taxpayer why 
there is increasing poverty on the pari ol 
the city, notwithstanding an Increase In 
amount and rate of taxation. 

The city will probably not receive Its 
prober pniportion of the taxes until 
many of the taxing bodies and tax-eating 
bodies are abolished. It Is pure folly to ex- 
pect any administration to provide for the 
needs of Chicago with the Increased area 
and population shown above by .an in- 
crease of only $1,089,143.94 over the tax in- 
come of 188S. The remedy for this is to 
be found, in my judgment, In a new city 

The growth of the city and the enter- 
prise of fts citizens have been strangled 
almost to suffocation under the evil intiu- 
ence of these archaic provisions. 

If the different taxing bodies, that is, 
the park boards, the county, the towns, 
the schools, the libraries and the drainage 
board were consolidated into one govern- 
menl in tlie present limits of Chicago, not 
enlv would there be centralized respon.^i- 
bili'ty in the administration of public af- 
faiis. but there would aiso be great sav- 
ing in the cost of public administratloi.. 

Conditions In Chicago show tin awaken- 
hig public consciousness. The eiiterpii-e 
of the citizens of Chicago is worid wide 
in its reputiition. It only remains to apply 
the game charai teristio slud>- and atten- 
tion to municipal affairs that have beei' 
devoted to private business for the city ot 
Chicago to furnish in municipal govern- 
ment the same modern example of excel- 
lence it has already furnished the world 
in industrial affairs.

"I know now why one Tenderloin res- 
taurant keeper is successful," remarked 
a Wall street broker .o the New York 
Sun the other da>. "I was In the main 
dining loom at \, o clcck one evening vvlih 
a party of men. We noticed a littie com- 
motion near the emrance, and saw icat 
it was caused by the ariival of i \nou 
dressed, good -•uiuired icftjking man, 
whose beariiigs sh-iwcd that he iiao been 
out with the boys. He wasn't noisy or ol- 
fensive, but he couldn't have walkeu a 
chalk line if his life had depended on It. 

••He came down the room In an uncer- 
tain wav, seile.l oW his overcoat, put it 
with his" hat on a chair, set down, lolded 
his arms on the table and went to sleLp. 
The waiters looked at him and ran after 
the head waiter. The latter walked up to 
the sleeping man, as tliough he intejide(i 
to awaken him. Then he stupped ai.d 
called a wait<'r. 

" 'Go for the proprietor,' he said. 

The proprietor came. , ^^ ^ , ,. 

'• •That's so-and-so,' said the head wait- 
er 'He's a good customer, but he's very 
drunk, and he's gone fast asleep. What 
shall I do? Shall I wake him up?" 

"We musn't offend him,' said the pro- 
prietor. 'I'll tell vou what to do.' Then be 
whispered to the head waiter, and went 
away. The head waiter called a waiter 
and in turn whispered to him. Then he 
went awaj-. 

"The waiter went to the china pantrv 
and came back with a finger bowl. This 
he put on the table where the 
man was. In doing so he rubbed the fingers 
of the sleeper. The man straightened up 
and opened his eyes. The Uty was not 
looking at him but had picked up the 
^ater bottle and was filling the finger 
lowi. In doing so he knocked the bowl 
with the bottle so that It rang like a bell. 

"The drunken man looked at it witli 
brightening eyes. The boy paid no atten- 
tion to him. but shook out a napkin which 
he laid beside the finger bow;. By this 
time the drunken was fully awake. Ihe 
bov took up his overcoat and stood res- 
pectfully at one side as If waiting for 
the man to rise. ^ , ,u 

"The drunken man put his hands In the 
finger bowl, dried his fingers on the nap- 
kin and rose. The boy was behind him in 
a moment, and in another the overcoat 
was on the man's back, his hat was in his 
hand, and he was headed for the door. 
He put his hand into his pocket, slipped 
a coin to the boy. and walked out.

"I rend a story in last Sunday's Sun 
about the luck of somi detectives," said a 
Western man the ot ler evening lo the 
New York Sun. "Well it's not only in the 
detective business that luck counts. Luc'; 
affords us all our chan.ce to get a good 
grip on success. Its orly another name for 
opporlunlty. If a men has tne brains to 
follow up a streak of luek he is pretij 
sure of getting ahead. Opportunity comes 
to most of us sooner jf later and ihe fel- 
low who doesn't catch on has only himself 
to blame. 

"The luckiest fellow I ever knew was a 
newspaper man who worked out west a 
good many years ago. I sui)pose he w-oiild 
have got along an.\ how if he hadn l .Ttun.- 
bled into several of tne best stories tliat 
ever were, but his luclc helped him a great 
deal, e?pecially as he lad the gumption to 
push it for all it w is worth. One da> 
wlien things were not coming very well 
for him he made up hi- mind to <hange his 
base of operations frani one city to fin- 
other. This used to be a great trick with 
Western newspaper rion. Tliey went the 
round from city, and the movement was 
so steady, that it wrs never difficult ,o 
catch unto a new jot. Well, this fellow 
went into a new towr ami got a .loij on a 
morning newspaper. His s.ilary was not 
big enough to keep him awake at Uighi, 
but he was energetic ind started out just 
as though he was making millions. He 
did only indifferently well for a week or 
two and the city ed tor began to thinlt 
that the new man w;is a dead one. 1-ut 
all the new arrival wanted wa.<» a chance 
and he vowed he would show them what 
kind of a man he wis. 

"This chance came very unexpectetlly. 
It was a cold, dark right in tiie late fall 
when he was sent oi t to cover the out- 
Iving police stations. The regular man 
was ill, and a substl.ute was necessary. 
Tlie assignment was not a good one, but 
it was better than sitting aioun-l the 
office and the reporter weiit on ia with 
as light a heart as he had for some time 
If only something would happen the 
young man knew he would cover himself 
with glorv. He didn't wish anybody to 
suffer a misfortune or his sake, but it 
IheiAwas a mvsterioi.B murder to be < oin 
milled in the near future he hoped that 
It would happen on tiis particular niglu. 
"While he wa.s walltlng along a desert- 
ed street thinking over these things, lie 
saw on the board walk ahead of I'ini the 
outline of a human form. It was getting 
along about midnight, and there was not 
a soul in sight. The reporter looked up 
an(] down the street and saw that it 
wa.s deserted. Then he approached .he 
prostrate figure. He naturally thought 
that it must be some drunken person who 
had fallen asleep, but his mind was alert 
Vo the possibilities ol a big beat in case 
it was something mo e interesting. Lean- 
ng over and striking a match he ^^^^ 
that the figure was t lat of a man. Theie 
was blod on his face. -The reporter struc-K 
another match and loDked closer He s<.w 
that the blood came from a >»ttle louiid 
hole Just under the man s jaw. He U i 
The hands of the bodv. /rh^y were gel- 
ting cold. He listene.l at his heart. There

bevond all question. and the repoiter 
knew tht he had his leat. ^ .. . .. ^. ,^^

the boards were loos(. The reporter pull- 
ed UP three of them Mid dror^tll tht;.bod> 
down into the hollo^N between the 
lings on which the boards were nailed. 
Thin he carefully placed the boards in 
their proper position, right over the body 
so th.-lt army might pass v^;ithout knov^- 
ing what was underreath. This done, h« 
made tracks for the office letting the res 
of his tour go by the boards He rushf d i 
all excitement, filled the night desk witii 
his own enthusiasm and ground out « 
column and a half, double l£?<3cd, befoie 
the paper went to t le press. ^^ n^n hi.- 
rlvals woke up the next morning they 
[ouni th.?t the new reporter was the big- 
gest man on his paper. The dead man 
turned out to be of some importance and 
the ca«e ran In the papers for several 
days It was a muider clearly enough, 
but It was never soved. 

"This was only th( beginning of a lun 
nf luck of this kind that made the new 
reporter a wonder to his friends. Not sc 

very long after this he was sent out to see 
a man who had been having trouble with 
his wife. A divorce was under way and 
developments were expected. The man 
lived in a f.i.<hloiii»ble part of the town, in 
his own house. Ills wife wa.« living with 
friends in the .same neighborhood. The 
reporter reached the jdace about !i vi'clock 
in the evening. He was ushered into the 
parlor, and to his surprise lie found the 
wife there also. The man had sent for 
her to have a last talk with her before 
going an.v further with his plans. No 
one else was in tht; house, not even the 
servants, for the house had been closed 
seTeral months and only op«*ned by ihe 
man for this occasion. 

"On the arrival of the reporter the con- 
versation which ahe husband and wife had 
been carrying on before his ceas- 
ed. B<jth of them were evidently greatly 
excited. The man was walking the floor. 
The woman was sitting in a chair near 
the door. The reporter wa.* ill at ea>:e, and 
stood for a moment, wonilering what to 
do. Suddenly the man turned in bis walk, 
whipped out a revolver from his hip pock- 
te and fired phmip at the woman. She fell 
door behind him he put the key In the 
weapon on himself and blew out his 
brains before the reporter could lift a 
hand to stoi> him. 

"Now. there was a situation. Tl.-e man 
and women were dead. 'Itie reporter 
satisfied himself of this fact .'ind then sat 
down to think it over. He waite<1 to he.-ir 
If an.v one else had heard the shots. No 
one came. Evidently they had not been 
hi'ard in the street and there was no -ine 
in tite house to hear them The reporter 
sat ^here about three minutes. Then he 
got up and <lrew a long breath and walked 
to the doiir. He opened it. pulled out 
the ke.v and stepped outside. Closing the 
dor behind him he i>ut the key in the 
lock afj.Tiii tinJ turned it. The doail hus- 
band and wife were inside and no one 
in the town knew that tlieir domestic 
troubles were over except that reporter. 
As he walked down the ftont steps of the 
hou<e he was whistling. Very deliberately 
he walked up the street imTil he reachj Jl 
a cab stand. Arriving tht^re he jumii«»d 
into a cab and a wav he went to the of- 
fice. Then lie s;i: down and ground out 
'opy until the paper went to press. The 
first news that tlie town and the police 
had of the tragedy was that which wa.s 
given by his paper. All in all, I think 
thai was about the (;oolest piece of that any man ever did. 

■But that wasn't the end of that chap's 
wonderful luck. He sent clear up 
Into British Columbia once by his p-^per. 
One morning he was sUtitig «l breakfasi 
In a little hotel when who r-hould walk in 
but tlie \evy official that had rolibefl his 
town of thiiusaiKls; of dollars. The police 
of all the cities on the continent liad been 
looking for him without avail and here re 
stimibled right into the arms of this re- 
porter. They recognized each other and 
nodded. The official ate a very meagre 
breakfast. He hurried out of tli" idace 
end the reporter let him go. but he sent 
a Ions account to his papei telling where 
the offical had been that day. 

"It happened that thi.s repi)rter oecidcil 
to leave the city in which he had maile 
his record. No one knew him in his new 
place, and he went to work juat like any 
other reporter would, with his way to 
make all over again. After about threo 
weeks* service on an afternoon paper he 
was sent out of town tn investigate a story 
In another part of the eta to. He tOf>k a 
train that left in the evening without notl- 
fving his office just whlcfi one It wds. 
Next morning th«?re was a lip from tho 
man at police headquarters that an ex- 
press train had been h^-ld up by 
about a hundred miles from town. Thero 
was A great Ide.'il of hustling among all tha 
reporters on the paper in an endeavor to 
dig up the story from local sources, for 
there was no hope of "getting it from tha 
countr.v correspondpnts until t.oo late to 
use It thRt day. It was loi;gh picking, 
because the railroad and ex'^oss people 
did not know much of what had hap- 
pened, nnd wonldn't tell all tho knew. 
The paper was In dlspalr, when along 
came the first of a 4'Hii.i word Ftory from 
the man who had left the night before. 
Tt was his train that had bcpn hel^ up. 
and he had the story. He kept up ahi» 
marvelous run of luck so long as I knew 
him, but when it was all «aid and (Jone. 
the greater part of his success came from 
the man's activity and shrewdness In us- 
ing Information for the benefit of him- 
self and his paper."

she roplicl. in cold, matter-of-fact tones, 
"because yon brilliant orb Is just ll,7fi0,97l

"0, if my mother were only alive.*' 
How frequently young mothers use this expression I 
All through her life she has known a mother's watchful 

She is now a mother herself and gains in strength but 


She would give worlds to do everything for her precious 
babe, but cannot . 

That tiny babe has unfolded in the young mother's heart 
new emotions ; she has a living responsibility, and requires 
strength to enable her to perform a loving duty. At such a 
time too much care cannot be taken, and the greatest 
assistant that nature can have is Lydia E. Pinkham's 
Vegetable Conapountl, 

The birth of the first child is an especially trying expe- 
rience and nature needs all the help it can get. A happy, 
healthy young mother is a delight to herself and all who 
know her. and Mrs. Pinkham's medicine will build her up as 
nothing else can. 

Read Mrs. Johnson's Letter for Proof. 

" Deak Mrs. Pixkham:— For some time T have 
thoug'ht of writing- to you to let you know of the 
great benefit I have received from the use of 
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. Soon 
after the birth of my first chiltl I commenced to 
have trouble. Every month I grew worse, and at 
last became so bad that 1 found I was gradually 
losiuy m3' mind. The doctors treated me for fe- 
male troubles, but I (Sfot no better. One doctor 
told me that I would be insane. I was advised by 
a friend to give your medicine a trial, and before 
I had taken all of the first bottle my neighbors 
noticed the change in me. I have now taken five 
bottles and cannot find words sufScient to praise 
it. I advise any woman who is suffering from any 
female weakness to give it a fair trial. I thank 
you for vour good medicine."— MRS. GERTRUDE

Jlinneapilis, IVb. 19.— The Dispatch 
says: It is settled tiiat L. A. Ilosing. 
chairman of the Democratic slate cen- 
tral cemmittce, will take charge of the 

St. Piuil CJlcrlje some time prior to March

It is gt-nwrally umiorstood that James

luxur.v. Since tho Globe executed its re- 
markable acrobatic feitt last year of sup- 
porting McKitdey fiir president and LInd

with its Democratic con.>*iituency. Tne 
raiiwa.v V.\\\)i lias decided to part company 
with the Globe. He has received bids 
from the Pioneer Press nnd the Disnaich. 
The latter p;ipi>r would have ust-d the 
Gl«be as Us morning edition, while the 
Pioneer Press only wanted to stifle the 
voice of Its rival, I'nd absorb its <-ircula- 
tion. Mr. Rosing got the inside track 
and secured an jptlon, goo<l until Mai-oh 
15. He then went energetkally to work 
forming a stock companq, and either pei- 
.oonallv or by letter Inlervlewt-d all th.^

now (inlte certain that the de.T.1 will ot^ 
carried through and that the Globe will 
begin its new carev>r with ample linanddl 
backing. Tlie purchase price whlf^h will 
be paid is not stated, but this much is 
learned from authcritive sources: 

L A. Rosing will have active control 
of the paper as editor and manag-^r.

From Tlio Herald 

Washington Bureau. 

Washington, Feb. 19.— (Speci:^.l to The 
Herald.) — I'rominent politicians in 
Washington have been recently specu- 
lating as to the successor of Senator 
Hanna as chairman of the Republican 
national campaign committee in liW-l. 
Of course, it is well known that as 
President McKinley will not seek a 
third term, some other distinguished 
American will receive the nomination 
for the presidency in that year. Natur- 
ally, Mr. Hanna, who did not care to 
serve in this capacity in the last cam- 
paign even, would absolutely decline, if 
asked, to accept the national committee 
ciiairmanship in the jiext presidential 
campaign. Even if he were inclined to 
do so, the Ohio senator's health would 
rot permit him to undertake the hard 
work of managing a third presidential 

Of course, the politicians in Wash- 
ington and elsewhere are at sea reg.'.rd- 
ing the man who will be chosen to head 
the Hei)ublican national ticket in 1904. 
At the present time the outlook seems 
to favor Vice President-elect Roosevelt, 
but three years may go change the 
situation that the famous rough rider 
will not, at that time, be in the run- 
ning. If everything is favorable. as 
before stated In Washington dispatches 
to this paper, Col. Roosevelt will be an 
aggressive candidate for the presidency 
in the next campaign. In the event 
that he is dropped by the New York 
state politicians and by other repre- 
sentatives of many other states in the 
i:nion, it is impo.ssibie now to predict 
the successful aspirant for the Repub- 
lican nomination. As is well knnvn. 
Senator Fairbanks, of Indiana, is one 
of the men who will endeavor to cap- 
ture the presiilcntial prize as th^ can- 
didate of the Middle Western states. At 
the present time Roo-sevelt and Fair- 
banks are the only two men di.scussed 
as good timber to head the ticket, but 
other men of prominence may be 
brought to the front for this high honor. 

Another man discu.sscd as avaiial)le 
for the Republican nomination is Mr. 
P,cveridge, the junior senator from In- 
diana. His prominence as a presidential 
candidate, it will be recalled, was ad- 
vanced by a resolution adopted by the 
Republican merabiirs of the Tennessee 
legislature. It does not seem possible, 
however, that Senator Reveridge, if 
the next presidential candidate comes 
from Indiana, will bo able to defeat 
both Roosevelt and Fairbanks; the 
latter considered his per.sonal friend and 
present colleague in the United States 
senate. It will be recalled that a short 
time ago an attempt was made by tho 
friends of Senator Hanna, of Ohio, to 
boom him for the presidi-ntial nomin- 
atii^'n in llt04. However, Mr. Hanna 
would have none of it. He put a 
quietus upon the small-sized boom 
started for him in Ohio, and. even if he 
desired to become Mr. McKinley's suc- 
cessor, Repui>lican politicians in 
inglon believe that he would be utterly 
routed in the convention hall, ever, if 
he succeeded in securing the delegation 
from his home state. 

With the uncertainty prevailing re- 
jiaiding the next candidate for tlie Re- 
publican party, politicians have not lost 
sight of the fact that another astute 
campaign manager must be selected, 
no matter who the nominee may t>e in 
the next national campaign. As before 
stated, it is a certainty that Mr. Han.ia 
will not be the roan. Just at this time 
three men are talked of for chairman- 
Klup. The trio referred to are. Henry 
C. Payne, of Wisconsin; Representa- 
tive Charles Dick, of Ohio, and Perr>' 
S. Heath, the present secretary of the 
national campaign committee. I* 
might be stated that one other distin- 
guished politician has been discussed 
for the chairmanship, but it Is not hke- 
ly that he will be In a position to take 
it. if offered to him. Matth'^v Stanl-=y 
nay, of Pennsylvania, is the fourth man 
referred to in connection with the chair- 
manship. In view of the fact, how- 
ever, that Senator Quay is along in 
years, and further, that his health is 
not the best, it seems unlikely that he 
vould think of going through another 
campaign, even as manager of the Re- 
publican canvass. 

One of the shrewdest politicians in 
the Republican party is Henry C. 
I'ayne, of Wisconsin. This fact is con- 
ceded by Republican politicians, who 
have been cognizant of the work done 
by Mr. Payne in years past, particu- 
larly in 1896 and 1900. Next to Mr. 
Payne in prominence. Representative 
Dick, of Ohio, is considered one of the 
most astute political manipulators In 
the Republican party. It will be seen, 
therefore, that out of the four men men- 
tioned as capable of managing the next 
Republican canvass, Payne and Dick 
are the only ones considered shrewd 
enough to manage the affairs of the 
Republican party as national chairman 
in the next campaign.

A physician now retired from jJrac- 
tlce, but who still keeps abreast of the 
times, in speaking of the advance made 
in medicine in the last ten years, says: 
"One of the most obstinate and bafllin.g 
diseases Is the very common, trouble, 

Nasal catarrh Is only one of its many 
forms; catarrh of the throat, catarrh T)f 
the stomach, bowels, liver and bladder 
are very common, but the sufferer 
usually thinks it Is something- else than 
catarrh and is treated for the wrong 
disease. * 

The best and most successful treat- 
ment for any form of catarrh is now 
admitted to be by internal remedies 
through the stomach, and the safest and 
probably the most efficient is In the 
tablet form, sMd by druggists as Stu- 
art's Catarrh Tablet.=. 

I have seen many remarkable cures of 
catarrh resulting from regular daily use 
of these tablets, whidh seem to act on 
the blood and liver, driving the catarrhal 
poison out of the system through the 
natural channels. 

I once had occasion t» analyze these 
tablets and found them to contain no 
cocaine nor opiates, but simply a com- 
bination of (harmless anti.'»eptlc3 like 
Eucalyptal, Guaiacol. blood roDt, etc. 

At any rate, I have known of severe 
catarrhal headaches vhich were cured 
by Stuart's Catarrh Tablets, and ca- 
tarrhal deafness, hay fever, asthma and 
catarrh of the throat and stomacti speed- 
ily show great benefit after a few days' 
use of the remedy, and when It is re- 
membered how much more convenient a 
tablet Is than inhalers, douches, salves 
.«nd powders, it is mt surprising that 
this new preparation should so rapidly 
supplant all other remedies for catarrh.

Ottawa, Ont., Feb. 19.— In tiie house of 
commons Mr. McLean, of East York, 
called the attention of. the g:>vernment 
to a St. Petersbur.g dispatch announcing 
the imposition of a retaliatory tarift 
against the United States. Mr. Mc- 
Lean argued that Canada should fol- 
low iJhe example .set by Russia and have 
a sliding scale tariff which would favor 
our friends and be directed a.gainst th'^se 
who were not frlen lly. He said that 
Canada was the best outside consumer 
the United .States liad, and so long as 
we were fools enough to go on as we 
were doing at present, Canada would 
never get fair treatment from the United 
States. Canada should touch the Amer- 
ican picket through the tariff. If Can- 
ada did so the Alar'an boundary ques- 
tion and other unsettl d matters of both 
countries wr.uld si nn be disposed of. 
The government made no reply. 


An Absolute Necessity 
in Many Cases. 




Our Modern Rebuilder, Vinol, 
Will Help You Do It. 


Are yon getting' thin? If yon are 
you had better watch yourself. Take 
Vinol. It will build you up quickly 
and surely. 

A healthy roan does not vary much 
from year ' to year iu hi.s weig-ht. 
This is as it should be. Vinol enables 
the organs of the body to renew flesh, 
muscle tissue, bono structure, and at- 
tends to purifying the great vital cur- 
rent of the human system, the blood. 

Vinol contains the active curative 
properties of Cod-Liver Oil in a highly 
concentrated state, and is the most 
wonderful tonic that we have ever had 
anything to do with. 

Vinol acts upon the stomach in a 
beneficial way, enabling it to obtain 
for itself the neces.sary ingredients 
from the food that is taken into it to 
build up the pure healthy body and in- 
crease the weight. 

Mr. H. M. Stufell. who is a well- 
known passenger trainman on tho 
Boston and Maine Railroad, suffered, 
as many railroad men do, with kidney 
and other troubles, lie writes as fol- 
lows : 

"My kidne.vs troubled me a great 
deal, m.y bowels were very irregular, I 
had great distress in mv stomach, suf- 
fered with bilious headaches, had no 
appetite, could not sleep nights, and 
was losing rapidly. 1 began to 
take Vinol, I am now on my third bot- 
tle, and it is doing wonders for me. 
My kidneys are better, my bowels are 
again regular, ray stomach no longer 
troubles me, and no more headaches, 
and as for appetite, don't .speak of it; 
I sleep like a top and have gained 
thirteen pounds. You can count on 
me always to recommend Vinol as the 
king of medicines." 

With many such testimonials as 
the above coming: before us, it is not 
strange that we endorse Vinol as 
strongly as we do. We unhesitat- 
ingly agree to return to any one 
who has taken Vinol and is not 
satisfied that it has accomplished aU 
that we claim for it every cent that 
they have paid hs for this remedy.

He Severely Denounees "iho 

Ready Hade Confestion" 

of Officer Rooney. 

Minneapolis, Feb. 19.— Yesterday af<#r- 
noon In the Hamilton trial was taken up 
with the address to the jury for the de- 
fense by Frank M. Nye. He electrified ihe 
jury. He spoke of the circumstances sur- 
rounding the tragedy as a "scene of paji- 
demcnlum— a drunken brawl." He de- 
clared that every one In the room was m 
liiiuor. He gave Officer Rooney and his 
"ready-mode confession" a terrible ar- 
raignment. "Before I am through," he 
declared with fierce earnestness, "I will 
allow you that Roonej- Is as false a man 
as t-ver quit the witness box." The state's 
learned attorney would have the jiu-y l>e- 
lleve that Rooney's testimony was true; 
that the testimony of Murrav, Canfleld 
and Francis was false. He said he would 
stake his life on Barbe. His action in try- 
ing to succor Da,y Indicated that his mind 
was clearer than that of any other man in 
the case. The testimony of Barbe was that 
there was a general melee, and that he 
pulled hia friend Bennett out of the crowd 
by the ;eg. On that statement he was al- 
most willing to "hang the life of this boy 
who had never done any wrong that the 
state could prove." There was nothing 
clearer in the world than that drunken 
men will gather and gravitate around a 

Every eye In the jury box was closely 
riveted ©n Mr. Nye, as In a wonderfully 
modulated voice, now low, now ringing 
clear in clarion notes above the buzz of 
the court room, he painted them a vivid 
word-picture of what happened in the bil- 
liard room. George, Force and others 
were shrinking from the feet that they 
were more or less mixed up in the fight. 
He declared there was more than one 
knife mixed up in the trouble. "I want 
these other fellow.%" he said, "to take 
their medicine. I want all the black my.s- 
tery in this case to bo cleared up by the 
sue light of truth." Ray Evans" connec- 
tion with the case was handled without 
gloves and in a mannt>r calculated to 
make that young man's ears burn. 

Mr. Nye began speaking at exactly 2 
o'clock. He thanked tho jury and said 
he was thankful to the press for the way 
in which the boys stood by Hamilton. "No 
family circle gathers about this boy. No 
father, brothers and sisters. No mother's 
loA-e sustains him— drifted out upon the 
unknown sea In his infancy. In the raiust 
of all this agony, in the midst of all of it, 
there is much to be thankful for. In all 
the raking and scouring of the city here 
by the state, they have not brought one 
atom of testlmany against this boy's 
character. Only in tho matter of drink 
can they speak 111 of him. No stain rests 
upon his character. I am thankful that 
we live In the tide of Christian civiliza- 
tion and of human sympathy and law. I 
am thankful that the presumption of the 
law is that you should believe in right— in 
innocenot' rather than in wrong. A man 
shall not be found guilty until twelve of 
his follow men have been compelled to 
find him guilty beyond a reasonable dpubt. 
We talk about human legislation, but law 
in the abstract is the will of God— all en- 
during law Is derived from that so.urce. 
Only those principles of law refiected 
from God can endure. 

"If you have got to find this boy guilty, 
you must so find beyond a reasonable 
doubt. There must be that feeling of im- 
partiality which is associated with hon- 
I'st minds, directing your minds, before 
you determine this case. This little rea- 
son of ours often errs and therefore, the 
law says, you must find a verdict ever 
with, a reasonable doubt In mind." 

Tlie expression "reasonable doubt" has 
often betn used as synonymous with 
"moral certainty. "' There is as much 
mystery today as th(»o was the hour 
of Oa>'s death. We have not got to ex- 
id.iin anything. "We have not got to toll 
you how I^eonard Day met his di-ath. 
"Have they proved their case? 
Would not the same evidence, generally 
s]x?aUiiig, be used against Mr. Kvans or 
Mr. Giorpe? 

"With the oxcepiion of the ready-mad^ 
corltPsiOTi of the ptllce oflUcer here, there 
Is no testimony adduced In this case that 
wnulii not have been relevant and per- 
tinent in an action a^alst the other men 
there. Why, the confession would have 
been the same with the name 
chan.cred, no maltr-r who was on trial. 

"The county attorney has undertaken 
to tell you iu-it who was sober and who 
was intixicaled t'nat night. He would 
have you bellevi he knows absolutelv. 
He says it is Inconceivable that a man 
should testify as Rooney did and speak 
falsely. After he has had from two to 
four years experi-'^nce he will find It Jio 
difficult matter to secure a ready-m.ide 
confession from a police officer. I will 
show before I get through that Rooney 
was as false a man as ever took the 
stand in court." 

Mr. Nye then deHared that the whole 
affair was a drunken brawl— CJary was 
vcrv drunk. Canfleld. Hamilton and 
Evans were very drunk— Evans, th-j 
worst. All the men in th*i room were 
more or less intoxicated. They were ail 
drinking n>t'n; it was a late hour. Now, 
thev were either under the Influence or 
thov testified wrongly. There is no quec- 
tlori about It. They were all drinking. 

"The learned state's attorney has the 
termeritv to say that nobody was drunk 
but Barbe and possibly Hamilton. 1 will 
stake my reputation on Bart)e, his pres- 
ence of mintf. his sympathy. Everything 
points to the fact that he took the clear- 
.^st ncte of what happened. Barbe was by 
Sill odds the soberest man there. He was 
the clearest miin in that wholo gang. 

"Barbes statement that the fight w-is 
general is true. He pulled his friend Ben- 
nett out of a crowd by the legs. O'Mal- 
ley heard the crias and noise from tlfe 
office of that great hotel. He went In to 
hear Evans calling '1 will cut your heart 

Drunken men will gravitate around a 
row. Do vou toll me those fellows had no 
hand In this thing. Keep this always in 
mind. These witnesses for the state ar-i 
aJl ashamcfl. They want to appear as 
far awav from Day as possible. I don't 
blame them, but I object to their ridi- 
culous atoirlcs. They were all taking an 
interest In Force and Evans. ^Vhy did 
thcv pay no attention to Day and Ham- 

I felt the very next day there was 
something wrong wtien they all testified, 
•We didn't see." George, who Is indig- 
nant at the slightest Imputation that h:> 
was under the Influence of liquor— he 
didn't see anvthinvr. They were all mixed 
up In the affair, either as peace makers or 
something else. 

"There was more than one knife used 
in that trouble, gentlemen. The scalp 
wound was made by a smaller Instru- 
ment than the one which inflicted the 
fatal wound. 

"Now. Mr. Erdmann saw the wounds 
and probed them, and he knovs what he 
is testifving to. As to the differe^ice In 
the size of the wounds on the body, they 
may have been made with one knife, 
but the .scalp wound shows that there 
was another knife used than this small 
one As to Doctors Dunsmoor and Wes- 
ton, thev admitted that Dr. Erdmann 
was far "more competent to judge of the 
wounds and how they were Inflicted than 
one who had simply listened to a des- 
cription of them. There were two knives 
ii«eti gentlemen, and Dr. Erdmann's 
cininion is certainly of greater value than 
those other physicians." 

Mr. Nye returned to the theory of gen- 
eral intoxicitlon. speaking of Day's 
wounds. Hamilton's injuries, Evans' 
wound.s, his cut and bloody clothes; 
Evans— wild and distracted. It was re- 
marked that Evans and George, took a 
sneak just as Dav receivpd his fatal 
wound. The two then walked to Tentn

In the Cartir of Frank H. Kamiiton 
It Rtlatsd. 

Denver, Ool., Feb. irt— "My God! To 
come to wed the girl you love, and then 
find that she Is raving. I feel as If I am 
going straight to the dogs." 

Leaning over :he bar of the O.xford hotel 
cafe, In August last, Frank H. Hamilton 
uttered these \.orda, and gulped down a 
glassful of whisky. 

It was asked yesterday, when the story 
was brought ts light: Did not the liitense 
love which this young man had for JIis. 
Ella Peterson, -vho died in the hospital m 
this citv, actus lly inject an omnipresent 
element of wild rcckles.sness into his life, 
and is not the killing of Day four weeks 
after her death the logical sequel to the 
young man's iiad infatuation? 

From the mcnient he received a mes- 
sage from Denver announcing the death 
of the woman he underwent a radical 
change. "To use a trite expression, he tried 
to drown his sc rrow in drink." 

It is a Strang' (, dramatic tale, this here- 
tofore unpublished chapter in the life of 
Frank H. Ham Iton, which haul Its enact- 
ment In this city. . ^ . ,^ ,. 

Thirty-six yeurs ago, in Boston, the ob- 
ject of Hamllion's affection was born. 
She was a brli;ht girl. She had musical 
and literary talent. She married J. Bou- 
vier Peterson, a prominent in vestment 
broker of Philadelphia. 

Two children were bom to them, both of 
whom are now with friends or relatives In 
tho East. Mrti. Peterson's father and 
mother both died of consumption. She in- 
herited this disease. 

Her marital relations wore not pleasant, 
and she and Peterson separated. Nearly 
two vears ago Urs. Peterson came lo Col- 
orado -for her health. Hamilton, too, had 
consumption, and came to Colorado, and 
resided at Coh-rado Springs. 

Two years aro In Denver he met Mis. 
Peterson, and that was the turning point 
in his life. Used to a Bohemian exist- 
ence, with plenty of mnnoy a passion to 
become the husband of a noble wo/nan 
Re1zi*d him. He would s^-ttlo down in Min- 
neapolis as a married man. 

In June last Hamllt'in left Denver, com- 
pletely cured, i/lth a light heart. Aug. 17, 
two months af erward, he returned here, 
his pockets bulging with gold. Ella Peter- 
son had taken up her residence in Denver, 
and Hamilton :ame to wed her. 

In the mornlr.g he le.irncd tha^t she was 
a patient at one of tho hospitals. He ran 
from the stall m to the hospital, ^'ter 
reaching the Institution Hamilton s.%nk 
into a chair, snd buried his face lij his 
hands. Tears rolled down his ch"«ks. 

The young nan tried to speak, but In 
vain. Almost cut of hi? mind Hamillon 
left the hospltil. Instead of a weddt.-.g, 
fate had given him a bitter cup. Hamilton 
visited the hospital once or twice, but m 
earh case Ella Pet^rron was out of her 
mind, and t!^e irrief of the young man was 
pitiable. He tiled to assiat her, but she 

was already the recipient of every atten- 

Hamilton journeyed back to Minneapo- 
lis. Sept. 3. only two weeks after Hamil- 
ton had left Denver, the patient passed 
away. He had loved a.s only men of hU 
kind can love. The death of his sweet- 
heart had completely unnerved hlTli. 


Will Remain In London During Hie 
Rast of tha Waek. 

Now York, Feb. 19.— A dispatch to the 
Tribune fmnn London »;ays: The king and 
<iueeii will remain in London until the 
end of the week when they will spena 
Sunday in the country, cither at Windsor 
or at Sundringham. London has become 
lontjie more lUo '.oliief social jvsidence 
with the sovereign close at hand where 
his ministers can consult with him. 

'J"ho> transition jn<?ans much to llxo 
tradesmen of the West End for they per- 
ceive in It a promise of potency for a 
Irjiig and prosperous sea.son. The kini? has 
settled down to his work and fs thuTou^h- 
ly Interested In it. Those who know hint 
well assert that the business of .state 
will not be neglected by him, and that It 
will tend f> lengthen rather than shorten 
his life. Queen Alexandi.a was greatly 
depressed when the reign opened and was 
not disposed lo take pari In stale func- 
tiojis. but the king has Insi.sted upon mak- 
ing her a prominent tiguro at Westmin- 
ster, and has oven created a precedent 
for equality of rank and distinction when 
the college heralds raised objections. The 
queen's Interests In affairs of stale have 
been stimulated and the king is making 
full use of her popularity as his strongest 
resource and the court, Instead of being 
conducted by the prince of Wales.' set, 
will l>e strongly influenced by the queen's 
will and taste. This is the Judgment of 
those in daily contact with the sovereign 
and It is a good augury for the new reigu.

Chicago, Feb. I'J.— This day in wheat will 
rank among the dullest experienced for 
some time, but iiotwiihstaudins? that es- 
sentially bearish feature, the market has 
not only held its own but shown an .lU- 
vance. The n<. ws was generally bearish. 
Shipping demand entirely absent. New 
York exports 13 loads. The only hopeful 
feature was a falling off In Western re- 
ceipts and some bullish talk from Argen- 
tine. It is getting near time for tlie 
usual crop damage talk to materia'»lz<\ 
wheat is showing an ability to withstand 
the most bearish of conditions Aviihouc 
feeling it. This is winning some frienua 
on (he prineli)le that IniU news will pro- 

portionateljj' turn the "lirmnoss under 
bear Influences Into a pronounced 

The corn market has been ciulet with 
the .aggressiveness on the selling .side on 
tiic part of certain professionals, notably 
P.ittcn. still in existence. Prices have 
about maintained themselves, wh.lch in 
view of the enormous nuantity of corn 
thrown upon the market is (luite remai'k- 
able. There is h^ome shipping business re- 
ported. 2o0.r'00 bus from here, '.'•2 loads 
from New York. The very generjil belief 
which the countrj* has in tlieir own j)rop- 
erty is fidly demonstrated by their will- 
ingness to take corn even at these prices 
in such (lunntltles as the selling by longs 
has allowe'l of the past two days. It is 
<iu!te possible that the introduction of this 
outside element on such a large scale and 
in combination with the commercial back- 
ing from a strong supply and demand sit- 
uation, that the market will hv taken out 
of the hands of thi> profi ssionals and 
corn will be dominated bv the outsider. 

The oat market has been Influtnced by 
corn. There has been some eleviYtor sell-

about held.

Interfering With the Shlpmsnt 
of California Oranges- 
Prices of Produce. 

California is doing all kinds of things 
to the fruit. A few days ago it was u 
frost that made it look bad for the 
lemon output, and the result was an 
Increase of some cjn.slderable propor- 
tl(uis in the price of the pleasantly acid 
fruit. Now it is rains that are intorfcr- 
ing with the shipments of oranges but 
the result of that is not yet to be cora- 
1 uted. Notwithstanding, oranges are 
easier in price. California naveL« being 
marked down 25 cents a box and sell- 
ing at $2..50 to $2.75 in.stead of $2.7.t to $3. 
It is questionable just now whether the 
rains are going to affect the price or 
the quality of the oranges. The crops 
are large, but if the rains continue too 
long and suspend shipments to any 
extent the oranges may suffer in tlieir 
keeping qualities. 

Butter and eggs are holding' steady, 
though one grade of creamery, that 
which comes in tubs, has been marked 
down a point and is selling at 19 to 20 
cents instead of 20 to 21 cents. Egg.o, 
which have been coming off a point 
about twice a week for several weeks, 
have not yet made any change tt^.is 

Catawba grapes, which have been 
scarce for some little time, have disap- 
peared, and are wiped off the list. 

Potatoes are easier again, and the 
price has made a slight drop, from 4S 
to 50 cents down to 46 to 4S cents. 

Cabbages will cost a little more, on 
the other hand, their price going up 
25 cents per 100 pounds. They are now 
held at $1.75 to $2 per 100 pounds in- 
stead of $1.50 to $1.75. 

Sweet potatoes are slightly higher, the 
Illinois brand having been made $3.iO 
to $4 instead of $3 to $4. 

There has been no change in poultry 
for some time. Receipts are ligtit. but 
little is doing. 

New York. Feb. 19.— The tone of specu- 
lation was very mucli confused and the 
movement of prices irregular at the open- 
ing. The steel stocks were especially un- 
settled, one or two of the common stocks 
scoring sharp rallies from yesterdays 
extreme depression and the preferred

Capf. Hajo Toils of the Sas- 

sion of Haetsrs and 


Capt. Alfred C. Majo returned on Sun- 
day from the annual meeting of the 
American Association of Masters and Pi- 
lots, that convened this j-ear at Washing- 
ton, D. C. Capt. Majo says he was very 
niueh Impressed with the meeting, thi.t 
he never before had any idea iliai the as- 
sociation was made up of so many nuo 
broad-mlndod men. He says tiie represen- 
tation was large, delegates being pivseut 
from almost every seaport of any conBO- 
quence on either coast and several dele- 
gates from the lake ports. Some of the 
lake ports were not represented, inter- 
est at these points having been klllcQ io 
a large extent by boat trusts. 

Capt. Majo savs that the ^essfion of the 
association was so taken up with the 
iicss that came before it from every part 
of the coast country that he had very la- 
tle time to see the sights in tne capital 
city. Through the efforts of the Masters 
and pilots' association and tho ves.sei- 
men's association, the law rcQUlring the 
fcxaminallon every five yenrs of lake pi- 
lots has been repealed, and that is the 
thing that the lake pilots have 1>een too 
most interested In. The law was very 
obnoxious to the pilots and tlie movement 
for its abolishment started some tune 
ago. As the law now stands, pilots that 
have not been in actual service for 3 pe- 
riod of three years must take an evmiina- 
tion before being granted a lici nse. 1 his 
the lake men are satisfied with and be- 
lieve that it is perfectly fair in every res- 
pect, at it protects the interests of ho 
Insurance companien and avoids the in- 
convenience and unnecessary annoyance 
to* the lake pilots of udergoing an cxam- 
latlon every five years before they can 
have their licen.«!es renewed. 

The Obiect of the law requiring the five- 
vtar ex.iminations was for the protection 
of the lake underwriters, who protested 
very vigorously against the then exist- 
ing laws bv which a pilot could quit the 
business aiid live by some occupation on 
land for a few years and then go back to 
piloting if thcv got tired of land work, it 
was argue^l that so many imporiani 
changes are being discoverea that are dan- 
gerous to navigation, that only the men 
that make it their Ijusiness to keep posted 
on the changes should be allowed to have 
a license. Capt. Majo says it is the .senti- 
ment of the delegates at the annual meet- 
ing that the required examination of those 
who are out of the business for th.-ee years 
will prove sufficient for the In.surance 
conip.nnies and at the same time work no 
hardship to those that are legitimately 
entitled to a l icense. 


Petitions Asliing Tlial W. C. 

Sargent's Emolumsnts Be 

Ndt Disturbed at Present. 

Petitions reg.irding the bill changing the 
position of sheriff of this county from a 
iec office to a salary ofTIce went down to 
St. Paul last night, covered with a large 
number of signatures of prominent busi- 
ness men and taxpayers. The effect of the 
petitions are that while the signers be- 
lieve that the change should be made. In 
all fairness they do not believe that it 
should be made during the term of all 
officer who was elected to serve on the old 
terms The petitions were very generally 
•signed and thev were taken to St, Paul 
last night by C. H. Graves 

The signatures are formidable enough In 
number and quality to be etrectlve If any 
petition is effective when the matter ha,s 
eone as far as It has, and In the face of 
the support of the bill given by the united 
delegation from this county.

The report was abioad a few day.*^ 
ago that the Armour interests were 
considering the erection of an elevator 
at Duluth very soon. This grew out of 
the visit of Mr. Higgirs. of the Armour 
company, to Duluth about ten days ago. 
His company is closely allied to tho Mil-

that thi.<= visit meant that the Ain^our

China Is Hot an 


Pekin, Feb. S.— The tight days given 
the Chinese authorltieis far the publi- 
cation of satisfactory elicts cannot, th-.' 
foreign ministers say, be considered as 
an ultimatum, as the notice only refers 
l)articularly to the cessalion of exam- 
inations, and also to the liability of Uie 
gDvernors of the pi-ovinces where out- 
rages may be committed. 

The military officials fall to see the 
difference in a series of ultimatums or 
a single ultimatum covering the entire 
demands, and ask if the Chinese re- 
fuse to agree to any p dnts during the 
number of days given, what the minis- 
ters intend to do. 

In the meantime the nilltary continue 
preparations for ttie expedition, the 
intention being to send out six columns 
of troops, two column? leaving Pekin, 
Tien Tsin and Pao Ting Fu respectively.

United States Will Not Be 

In the New Chinese 


Waehington, Feb. 19.— Thi.s govern- 
ment will not join in the contemplated 
nicvement of the allied armies against 
China, and an indication of our purpose 
will bo sent to the powers. This deter- 
mination was reached at today's cabi- 
net meeting. It is believed 'oy the presi- 
dent and the members of his cabinet 
that such 1 movement would t>e unwise 
from every point of \ lew, and would be 
in the nature of a demand that China 
ehall do what Is probably impossible for 
her to accomplish. 

During the cabinet meeting' to- 
day a cablegram from Min- 
ister Conger was submitted refer- 
ring to the proposed military expedition 
in China, under command of Count Von 
Waldersee. It disclosed the fact that 
cur mini.'iter had protested to the min- 
isters' council against hostile move- 
ments frf this character, but that his 
protest had failed to receive- considera- 
tion, the other foreign mini.«ter8 taking 
the ground that they had no authority 
to influence military operations one way 
or the other. 

A considerable portion of the session . 
today was given up to a discussion of 
matters relating to Cuba, and th« 
statement was made that the pres<dent 
still maintains that an extra ees-slon of 
congress would be necessary in case the 
Cuban constitution does not reach here 
in time to be acted upon at the present

iron Range & Huron Bay Rail- 
way a Thing of ihe 

L'Anse, Mich., Fe. lit.— John Campbell, 
of Detroit, superintendent of the Detroit 
Construction company, hatS ijut a crew of 
men at work te.^iing down the ore dock 
of the Iron Range & Huron Bay rail- 
road. There is a tine lot of pine in the 
dock aggregating nearly m.OOO.OOO feet of 
stleet stuff. It will take ai.xty days lo 
-| tear it down. The iloek was decked and 
the timber is as good as the day it was 
cut. It will be taken to Detroit. 

This will remove, the last vestige of 
about the wui'.-;t wlidcnt railroad enter- 
prise in Michigan. Milu Davis, formerly 
of Detroit, wh.) is now a fugitive from 
justice, and suiiposed to be some place 
in Mexico, worked the scheme, and the 
late J. M. Turner, of Lansing, was one of 
his victims. Christian Buhl and the 
Stevens, Alexander and Henry, of De- 
troit, were the heaviest losers. The 
scheme was to build an iron ore road 
from Champion to Huron Bay, forty- 
flve miles. Davis made the estimates, 
and the road was built and equipped. It 
was finished in the early nineties, and 
even if it had not struck the panic of '9:i 
it c<juld not have succeeded. Although 
splendidly equipped with 70-pound steel 
and the finest rolling stock, it was im- 
possible of operation on account of ter- 
rific grades. 

The' Id. id cost many times what Davis 
estimate^l. Nearly $3,000,000 were sunk 
in the forty-five miles of track. The 
grades were 8 per cent in some places, 
and would jlist about have required a 
locomotive for every car. Two tine 110- 
ton locomotives never turned a wheel. 
They were housed at Huron Bay, and an 
engineer took as good care of them from 
1893 until last August as though they 
were working night and day. The engi- 
neer had a house and horse furnished 
hmi, and he led an ideal life, hunting 
deer and partridge and fishing for trout 
the year round. Last August the irre- 
pressible and energetic John Winter, of 
Detroit, president of the Detroit Con- 
struction company, builder and owner of 
the Detroit, Lake Orion & Flint and 
other lower peninsula electric lines, 
bought the entire railroad and equip- 
ment that cost $3.00(1,000 for $110,000. 

Never a wheel had moved over it; 
never a ton of freight; never a passen- 
ger, and there were ore docks, 5000 tons 
of steel rail, locomotives, blacksmith 
shop and machine shop, a first-class in- 
terlocker, twenty tlat cars, hand caii?, 
lariies, tools and, in fact, a complete 
e(iuipment. Winter sent Campl)ell up 
and hustled things. Camplieil is the 
man who laid over 100 miles of street 
car track in Detroit a few years ago at 
the rate of five miles a week, requiring 
5000 men. So lively did Campbell puli 
up the track and remove it that most of 
it is being operated now over Winter's 
roails. The two fine 110-ton locomotives 
were sold to F. H. Clergue, Marquette 
delivery, for $14,000, dirt cheap, and they 
are now on the Algoma Central, the 
new road from the Soo to Hud.son Bay. 
They were taken from Hiu'on Bay to 
Houghton on lighters, and from there 
they went to the Soo, over the Duluth, 
South Shore & Atlantic -'-ailroad. It was 
a ticklish job to get them over the 
Huron Bay dock, and when they moved 
over the Huron Bay road the tics bioke 
like pipe stems. In faot the ties had 
dry rot and wnjild barely c^ustain a light 
Michigan Central engine rented to use 
for pulling up the rails. 

It isn't often nowadays that an en- 
tire railroad is bouglit for $110. Oi». Ic 
was a good stroke fur John Winter. 
And it isn't often nowadays that an en- 
tire railroiid, standard-gauge. 70-pound 
rails, 110-ton locomotives, ore docks, 
machine shops, i ars. etc., is nulled up 
and moved away with never a train over 
it once. It is probably the unly case like 
it in history. 

The Huron mountains will be lonelier 
and wilder than ever.

At Second Inauguration of 

President McKlnley on 

Harch 4 Next. 


It Promises to Eclipse All 

Previous Events of 

the Kind. 


•That Is\ 

'III i ruffcr to.' 



From Tbt Itorald 
Wathinfton Burtau. 

Wa.shlngton, Feb. 19.— (Special to The 
Herald.) — The second inauguration of 
President McKlnley on March 4 next 
promises to eclipse all previous events 
of the kind. The management is in the 
hands of public-spirited citizens headed 
by John Joy Edson. who have a per- 
manent interest in the Capital city, and 
who are determined to spare no pains 
and expense in seeing tSiat the large 
crowds from all over the United States 
who will attend the public ceremonies 
shall leave Washington with a realizing 
sense of the city's disinterested efforts 
to make this year's inauguration an 
event commensurate with the dignity of 
the nation. 

The committee, with rare good sense, 
appears to realize ttie full importance 
of i<roviding thoroughly for the comfort 
as well as entertainment of the large 
number of visitors from all over the 
cf)untry who Invariably attend the in- 
augural ceremonies. To this end a 
special committee on public comfort has 
been organized to look after the welfare 
of the general public. This committee 
has opened a register of private houses, 
etc., where board and rooms can be had 
for $2 to $3 a day. These quarters have 
been carefully inspected and are located 
in the most desirable parts of the city. 
In this manner the committee Avill be 
able to take care of from 18,000 to 20.000 
guests at moderate prices, exclusive of 
hotels. All the hotels, with the excep- 
tion of two Or three, whose rooms are al- 
ready engaged, will make a rate ranging 
from $2..'i0 to $5 a day for room and 
board. Those desiring to make arrange- 
ments in advance can write direct to 
"M. I. Weller, chairman of the commit- 
tee on public comfort, inaugural com- 
mittee. Star building, Washington, D. 
C," and can be accommodated with de- 
sirable quarters by stating the charac- 
ter of accommodations desired. Tliis 
represents a part only of the special ar- 
rangements made to provide for the 
comfort and convenience of visitors. 

The usual large enclosed and open 
stands are now being erected at inter- 
vals along Pennsylvania avenue from 
the White House to the capitol, the 
route of the inaugural procession. Seats 
may be engaged for a nominal price, 
from which to witness the great civic 
and military parade which will escort 
tfrie president to and from the scene of 
the important ceremonial. 

Aside from the grand ball at the vast 
Pension building on the evening of 
March 4. which will be attended by the 
president and official society of Wash- 
ington, by governors of states and visit- 
ing guests, there will be this year an 
extraordinary public display of fire- 
works in tho rear of the Wihite House 
and at the foot of the W'ashington 
monument. This display will be free to 
the public and in full view of every part 
of the city. 

The expenses for these entertainments 
are defrayed by the citizens of the na- 
tional capital. A conservative estimate 
places tlTP disbursement wSiich will 
have been made by the time the in- 
auguration closes at nearly 5100,000, 
from which the citizens of W'ashington 
derive no profit. Chairman Edson em- 
phatically declares no profit is expected. 

"In a matter of this kind," he said, 
"we have always been of one mind. The 
inauguration of a new president de- 
volves certain responsibilities upon us 
as citizens of the national capital, and 
we must rise to the occasion or confess 
that we lack that prld» in our beautiful 
and growing metropolis w-hlch other 
people feel in their home towns. With 
each recurring inauguration we have 
tried to improve on the one before, and 
the expenses have steadilj' increased 
with the more elaborate plans that 
were deemed necessary in keeping pace 
with the times. In this matter the peo- 
ple of Wasfhingto are determined to 
subordinate every consideration of sel- 
fis interest to the question of success. 

"In this matter we represent not the 
city of Washington, but the entlr" na- 
tioTi. It has been cur privilege and 
honor to look after the inauguration 
ceremonies since Jefferson became 
president, and we have always acted 
according to the best of our ability and 
means. It is not a local affair, but one 
that concerns the whole people. We 
regard ourselves fortunate In being in a 
position to nndertake the work and the 
lepponsibilitles. and we promise visitors 
an exceptional Inauguration, because 
we are better equipped for it than we 
ever were." 

The weather conditions in Washington 
during Inaugural week are generally 
favorable. The climate Is naturally 
mild, while there have been some ^-x.of'X*^ 
tions. inaugural dav is generally balmy 
and spring-like. The weather bureau 
rf the T'nited States .Tgricultural depart- 
ment ha? compiled the following table 
of the mean temperature at Washington 
on March 4 for the past ten years: 1S91, 
r!"> 'iegrees: is<>2. 47 degrees: 1S93. 2.S de- 
grees: 1894, 4.5 degrees: 1895. 40 degrees: 
IRDC. 32 degrees: 1897. 40 degrees: 1898. 
3fi degrees: 1899. 42 degrees: 1900. 42 de- 
gree.a. It will be observed that the tem- 
perature for ten yeirs has never been 
under "2 degrees ahjve zero except In 
1S93. when President Cleveland was in- 
augurated. With this one exception, the 
we.ather hns always been delightful. 

Among t*i^ governors who have al- 
ready notified the committee of their 
accept.Tnce of the Invitation to attend 
the inauenr.'^tion are the followinEr: 
Oovrrnnr Smith of Maryland, with staff 
t\tA three regiments of troops. Oovernor 
A. T. Bliss of Michigan and staff: Gov- 
ernor P.liss will have headquarters at

otfier nccentances are expected, and it 
is certain th.Tt the list of offidal visitors 
will be greatly augmented by the pres- 
ence of mayors of le-=iding cities and 
others of national Te">ntntloTi.

Redmond Will Oppost It on Aocount 
off Oath KInf Took. 

Loudon, Feb. !?>.— (Questions in tho 

house of commons today reganliiig tlie 
war in South Africa did little towards 
really enlightening the situation in South 
Africa. The secretary for war, Mr. 
Brodrick. gave a statement of the ever 
Increasing number of cases of typhoi<l 
fever among the trooi>», thus partially 
accounting for the long casualty lists. 
In October there were 1665 cases and aS 
deaths. In November, 1213 C"ases and 207 
deaths: in Decenibtr, 16© cases and iS6 
deaths. The total since the beginning of 
the war to December is 19,101 cases and 
4233 deaths. 

Lord Stanley, the financial secretary to 
the war office, Impartetl thet information 
that the government had purchased for 
the troops in South Africa. 118.975 horses 
in Great Britain, and 71,S74 elsewhere^ The 
Knglisii and Irish horses proved tlie 
bfst and the Americans ne.xt. Of tho 
latter 21.iXW» were purchased, while Can- 
ada supplied 3750. 

John Redmond, chairman of the ITnited 
Irish parliameiitarv party, took exception 
to the oath taken by King Edward in the 
house of lords. He declared that In as 
much as the Catholic religion was des- 
cribed ?i3 idolaterous and superstitious, 
he would oppose the granting of the 
king's salary. 

A. J. Balfour, the government leader, 
admitted he was no admirer of the form 
of words, but hoped the practical ques- 
tion of their ropelition was disposed of 
for many years to come.

London, Feb. 19. — The first division In 
the first parliament of King Edward 
VII, which took place yesterday, result- 
ed in cutting down to forty-five the sov- 
ernment's normal majority of 1.30. The 
Interest caused by this unexpected event 
was heightened by Mr. Winston Spencer 
Churchill's first speech at Westminster, 
and by Mr. Chamberlain's heated de- 
fense of his own policy. The extraordi- 
nary slimnesss of the majority of this 
strcngerit British government of modern 
times was the result of Lord Cranbern's 
refusal to answer questions relating to 
the government's foreign policy without 
previous notice from the questioners. 
John Dillon seized the opportunity, in 
spite of ah unusually large attendance, 
and almost placed the Conservative 
party in yueer street. 

In the course of an interview, subse- 
quent to the division, Mr. Dillon said: 
"I have waited a long lime for such a 
procedure in the house of commons. I 
have never had an opportunity to test 
the question. I knew I had the spirit cf 
many British members with me, irre- 
spective of parliamentary jealousy of 
individuals. What it means is that the 
govern raent will be obliged to remove 
the iLtbitrary ruling made by Mr. i?al- 
four, by which under secretaries of ;tate 
are not obliged to answer questions put 
to them. Had it not been for fexr of 
defeating the government, the number 
of Tories voting for my motion, or ab- 
staining, would have been greatly in- 
creased. As it was, about ten Tories 
followed the Liberals and Irish into the 
lobby, while numbers did not vote at 

"The question is more important than 
it appears to be in practice, for if Mr. 
Balfour's ruling should be followed, it 
would prevent the. Irish members from 
questioning the Irish secretary, and 
eventually deprive uis of all rights of 
free speech, in instituting the rule, Mr. 
Balfour broke all the precedents, both 
by enforcing the rule itself and by fail- 
ing to notify the oppositon leader of his 
intention. His whips made vigorous 
efforts, but with the result as to notify 
him that his tongue-tying lash will not 
be permlitoil any longer in the hou^e of 
commons. My motion appealed to the 
individual feelings of members. The 
radicals followed us because th^y had 
no other course. We cannot assume 
that the same spirit of general rectitude 
and fairness actuates the Liberal*! and 
the Tories, and should we have the 
chance we will divide when the civil list 
comes up, and over the absurd anti- 
Cathollc oaths required of the king at 
his coronation." 

Mr. Churchill's speech rajr;^ in reply 
to David Lloyd-George's criticism of the 
conduct of the South Ai'.Ican war, in tin 
couise of which he had denounced the 
burning of farms and t'i% keeping of 
Boer women and child er. in British 
laagers on >educed pro\isions. These 
charges created a general uproar, and 
provoked an angry demonstration from 
M"". Broderick, secretary of state for 
war that Mr. Lloyd-George should ofl'f r 
evidence to substantiate his assertions. 
Mi- Churchill caught the ey^ of ib.^ 
sr taker, and caustically answered Mr. 
Llojd-Qeorge. He indulged in epigram. 
su?h as "No other nation in fh-^ wur.d 
ever received so much verbal sympathy 
and so little practical supivrt ^s the 
Boers." Then he proceeded, half 
humorously and half seriously, to be- 
little the efforts of the pro-Boer mem- 
bers of the in behalf of their 
friends. He maintained the war In 
South Africa had lieen carried on with 
unusual humanity, and he closed with 
the declaration of his belief that at no 
distant date there would be an "Angli- 
cized, loy,^l, peaceful and prosperous^ 

Sir Robert Reid. Radical member for 
Dumfries burghs,- argued that all this 
could be accomplished without unnec^ 
sary severity and without witholding 

Mr. Chamberlain, springing to his 
I feet, stigmatized the speech of Sir

Consul Didderich Replies to 

inquiries About Karket For 

American Lumber. 


For Strictly First Class Hick- 
ory If Offered In Proper 

From Tht Herald 
Washington Burtau. 

^'ashlRgton. Feb. 19.— (Special to The 
Herald.)— United States Consul Diede- 
rich, in answer to a number of letters 
from American Jiims engaged in Ihe 
lumber business asking for information 
as to the rwiuirements of the German 

lumber market and as to the best 
means of extending the American lum- 
ber business, states that there is a 
jfrowins demand for strictly Hrst class 
hickory If offered in the market in 
prc>per sizes. The CSerman govern- 
ment requires a considerai)le amount oi" 
this wood to be used for poles to gtin 
carriages. It must be sent in scant- 
lings of 5 inches square, in lengths of 12 
feet 3 inches and 15 feet 3 Inches and 
21 feet, all measurements, thicknesses 
and lengths to have over-measurements 
for protection. The wood must be tree 
felled in winter and the shipment 
should be made nut later than Ajiril, 
l»hen the wood is not yet wholly dry. 

Liirge quantities of wainut lumljer are 
always in demand. The first quality 
must be fr<s* from sap and other de- 
ftcts. One inch and 1\4 inches in 
thickness is most used; walnut shortis, 
1 inch thick, 20 inches b>ng and 25 
inches wide for the manufacture of 
telephone cases are also in demand, as 
well as walnut scantlings 3 inches by 32 
Inches for table legs. 

There is more pitch pine lumber used 
In Germany than of all the others com- 
bined. It is gradually taking the place 
of other kinds of wood formerly in com- 
mon use. and the market for this Amer- 
ican lumber is already extending from 
the northern shore of Germany as far 
south as Switzerland. It is specially 
In demand for outside window casings, 
for wagons, freight cars and for all pur- where the woodwork is exposed. 
"When shipped as rough-hewn logs, 
these should measure on the average 
eighty, ninety and 100 cubic feet per 
stick. The timber should average 
thirty-five to forty cubic feet per stick. 
The lumber n.ust be free of sap and 90 
per c€'nt of it should be entirely clear. 

The American dealer in lumber will 
always have to meet in the German 
market a fierce competition on the part 
of Russian, Austrian and Swedish 
rivals, who have the advantage of 
cheaper freights. But the demand for 
lumber is steadily increasing, and it is 
utterly out of the question for Germany 
to ever supply that demand. Of all 
sections of Germany, only Bavaria and 
Wurtemberg have a surplusage of 
home lumber, all the other districts 
needing a great deal more than they 
can ever produce. And as the United 
States supplies only 7 per cent of this 
great demand, it will Ije readily ssen 
that there is an important opening in 
Germany for American lumber. 

Thore is another difficulty under 
which the American shippers of timber 
and lumber labor. According to the 
rules of the German railroads, a special 
freight is collected or. American pitch 
pine, yellow pine, hickory and black 
walnut, which must pay a higher rate 
for inland transportation than wood 
coming into Germany from other coun- 
tries. When it is remembered that the 
railroads in Germany are nearly all 
owned and managed, this special freight 
tariff Is virtually a discrimination 
against American lumber. As the new 
commercial treaties are now under dis- 
cussion, it might be well for American 
lumber merchants to ta'£e steps to have 
this matter stitled on a basis of Justice 
and equity. With good qualities of 
wood, projierly cut and dressed, and 
with a fair chance, American lumber- 
men maj' do a much bettor business in 
Germany than at present. 

Bron-.on offers the very best facilities 
for the importatio-n of American lum- 
ber, having two harbors, one on each 
side of the River Weser, ea.?h witii 
ample wharfage, where vcs.sels may 
readilj- diS'harge their cargoes of lum- 
ber, to be reloaded at will on board of 
carjj for transportation throughout the

partment with a very good story re- 
girding American jam. etc., in England. 
Mr. Boyle says: 

Reports from this consulate have sev- 
eral times during the past three or four 
years drawn attention to the great open- 
ing in England for American fruits, 
preserves, jams, pickles, condiments 
and other table delicacies. ' The Eng- 
lish people are the greatest consumers 
of jam in the world. It Is probably the 
fact that jam and not beef is now the 
national dish of the Britisher — or. at any 
rate, jam (including marmalade) runs 
bacon a close second. As the United 
States is now supplying a large propor- 
titm of the beef and bacon consumed in 
England, she can also, by proper meth- 
ods, capture a great share of the trade 
in jam, preserves, etc., in tfils country. 
In order to secure, and particularly to 
hold, the trade, however, it should al- 
ways be kept in mind that the English 
are very discriminating buyers. They 
want a gof)d article, and are prepared to 
pay a good price: and. as a rule, they 
are indifferent as to the place of origin. 
It is well knf>wn that nowhere in the 
United States can better American 
bacon and beef be bougtit than can be 
bought in England, and many American 
visitors declare that better American 
beef can be had in London and Liverpool 
than can generally be obtained in New 
York or Chicago. However this may 
be, it is a fact that shippers of Ameri- 
can beef to this market understand that 
they must send over t.he very best in 
order to compete with the home and 
colonial product. 

But to return to jam, preserves, etc. 
The English trade in these lines is in- 
creasing all the time. A great revolu- 
tion Is going on In the English table, 
more especially among the middle and 
working classes. What wero a few 
years ago expensive delicacies, found 
only on the tables of the well-to-do. 
are now to a great extent articles of 
daily consumption by the masses. Ex- 
cept so far as the very poor are con- 
cerned, it may be said that bacon and 
jam or marmalade are on every Eng- 
lish breakfast table: and an almost uni- 
versal "sweet" at lunch and dinner is 
a "compote." stew or tart, of which the 
chief ingredient is preserved fruit. In 
this connection the following article 
from the Londm Dally Telegraph of 
Jan. IS. 1901. Is of interest and contains 
a number of suggestions valuable to 
American shippers in the lines indicat- 

"Commercial journals in the T'nlted 
States are just now directing much at- 
tention to the vast development that is 
taking place In California and elsewhere 
in the manipulation of fruit i)Ulp and 
jam. and It seems that simething like 
a revolution In the enormous industry Is 
by no means an impossibility in the fu- 
ture. Something of the kind has been 
for(-shadowed in this country, an.l ob- 
servant visitars to the great exhibitions 
of grocery and confectionery at the 
Agricultural hall last autumn did not 
fail tn nrite the prominence assigned to 
partially boiled-down fruits, with a view 
to their ultimate conversion into pre- 
serves, seeing in the idea a passible 
valuable resource to the British mar- 
k'^-t gardener, now so often handicapoed 
bv gliitteil markets and low pries. The 
aim. however, of the American experts 
is to go yet further and work their pulps 
with the due proportion of .^ugar into 
practically jam bricks. One need not bo 
very old t"» remember how the house- 
keepers of the recent pa.«t us^d to prile 
themselves upon the stiffness and firm- 
ness of their damson or cherry 'cheeses.' 
w'-'.ich could b? stamped out in f\nciful 
forms with a pastry cutter, and were 
not even sticky to the touch. Those 
were due to careful boiling to the right 
point, after processes of putting the 
fruit through fine sieves and bringing 
the sugar to candy. This, upon a whole- 
sale scale, is what Amerionn jam boilers 
want to accompH.'h. and many experi- 
ments in that direction are now being 
carried out. 

"Incidental to inquiries, many inter- 
esting facts were gleaned as to the 
growing part that fruit pulps from 
abroad are playing in the manufacture 
of English jams. When a single order 
from one noted London firm alone 
amounts to twenty-eight tens of apri- 
cot pulp fr:)m California, it will convey 
some Idea of the magnitude the system 
is attaining. Plums, pineapples, quinces, 
apples and peaches are also largely util- 
ized in this way, and the latest triumph, 
as it Is claimed. In ttiis direction is that 
of being ablp to send into this country 
strawberry pulp. With the treatment of 
this material on such a scale, it is not 
astonishing that those who know the 
wonderful climatic advantages of Cali- 
fornia for drying should advocate the 
carrying of pulp preparation a step 
farther and presenting the jam Itself 
without the costly encumbrances of old- 
fashioned packing. Did American man- 
ufacturers .show rather more elasticity 
in their trade methods toward the con- 
servative Britisher, the volume of trade 
In this direction would be even greater- 
thciu it Is."

tlie question was not 
how little can we man-

— but this: What shall we have to mark them to bring 
throngs of men to take them away quickly; men who 
had thought to make the old coat last to the winter's end. 
More than all the profit sacrificed. We determined 
to make these coats absolutely the best bargains in 
town and we fmd we are selling all wool for less than 
some stores ask for cotton. We fmd that these prices 
average much less than cost of production. We fmd 
that we are selling Overcoats faster than any other store.

Bill Provoked Lively Debate In the Senate, 

But Was Finally Adopted By a Very 

Decisive Vote. 

Senator Hawkins' Resolution Passed For Gom- 

mittee to Meet Wisconsin Legislators to 

Arrange Uniformity of Vessel Taxation. 

St. Paul. Feb. 20.— (Special to The Her- 
ald.) — The tax commission bill was a 
special order for 11 o'clock, and precipi- 
tated a lively debate. Senator Under- 
leak led the discussion in favor of the 
bill, explaining its provisions and citing 
the experience of various other states 
with such commissions. Senator Mo- 
Govern attacked the bill, saying he did 
not believe a commission was necessary, 
but that the senate and house them- 
selves should — as a part of the duty for 
which they had been elected — correct 
defects in the tax laws. The tax laws, 
he said, were all right in themselves; 
the trouble was they were not enforced. 

Senator McCarthy made an impas- 
sioned speech in favor of the bill, stat- 
ing that in Itasca county alone enough 
property escaped taxation to pay the 
entire cost of the state government. 
Senator Knatvold opposed the bill, and 
Senator Young spoke in its favor, as did 
Senator Stockwell. 

The bill then came up on its final pas- 
sage, and a call of the senate was de- 
manded. This disclosed a quorum, and 
proceedings under the call were sus- 
pended. On roll call the bill wa^ adopted, 
with but four negative votes — Knatvold, 
McGovern, Schaller and Viesselman. 

The bill as amended by the senate 
provides for a commi?!sion of three, to 
be appointed by the governor, state 
auditor and attorney general, who shall 
submit a revision of the tax laws by 
March. 1902. and shall receive a com- 
pensation of $3000 each. The body is not 
to be a permanent one, but is to incor- 
porate in the mea.sure reported a pro- 
vision for a permanent commission. 
Senator Miller had Jhe measure amend- 
ed to provide for a report on Feb. 1. It 
was stated In debate that a special ses- 
sion of the legislature would HH^ly be 
called to con.=!ider the measure reported 
by the tax commis.^ion. 

The senate passed the following bills 
on the calendar: 

Knatvold— Appropriating $44,300 for 
distribution among state, high, graded 
and rural schools. 

Myian — Providing for municipal 

court.s in villages of over 2000. 

Thompson — Providing that members 
of the legislature who have served four 
or more temis and have studied law for 
.«ix months may be admitted to practice 
law on passing examinations before dis- 
trict judges. 

McGill — Prohibiting corporations, ex- 
cept railway and canal companies, from 
holding more than 5000 acres of land. 

Dutoit — Providing for a commission 
to erect monuments to mark position of 
Minnesota troops at Vicksburg and ap- 
propriating $10,000. 

CoHer — Increasing fees paid from the 
grand and petiti jurors to $3 per day 
and 10 cents per mile. 

Brower — llequirir.g common carrier.^ 
to maintain freight and passenger sta- 

Snyder — Allowing city councils to call 
.special elections for the submission of 
city charters upon petition of 5 per cent 
of the voters. 

In committee of the whole bills were 
recommended to pass as follows: 

Chilton— Regulating marriage. pro- 
hibiting marriage of imbeciles and in- 

McKuslck— Relating to descent of 
real estate. 

Hawkins— Redistricting St. Louis 

county for commlesioners and inciden- 
tally allowing the election of not more 
than seven commiHsloners. 

Coller — For disbarment of attorneys. 

Sweet — Providing severe penalties for

Kurd's oil Inspection bill was the next 
meaifure on genera- orders, but Senator 
Sheehan, making the point that the hour 
for considering the special order had 
arrived, moved that the committee 
arise, which carried, and the oil inspec- 
tion bill went over. 

Senator Hawkln? Introduced, and the 
senate adopted, a concurrent resolution 
providing for the appointment of a com- 
mittee of one eenaior and two repre- 
sentatives to meet with a similar com- 
mittee from the Wisconsin legislature to 
consider the subject of uniformity in 
taxation of steam vessels. The resolu- 
tion was concurred In by the house. 

The purpose of this joint commission 
is to reach an agreement between the 
stales of Minnesota and Wisconsin on 
the rate of tonnat'o tflx that shall be 
Imposed on Lake*. Superior traffic. It 
ip now 3 cents per ton, and the purpose 
is to raii^e it as. high as may be, in 
competition with otfier states along the 
great lakes. The rate cannot be safely 
put higher than at Cleveland and other 
points East. At the same time it must 
be the same in Minnesota and Wiscon- 
sin, as Duluth and West Superior lie 
Bide by side. Representatives Layb.iurn 
and Mallory. both fram Duluth, were 
named by Speaker Dowling as the house 
n«»inbers of the commission.

Washington. Feb. 20.— The senate

resolution heretofore Introuaced by Sen- 
ator Morgan declaring the right of the 
United States to proceed with the con- 
struction of the Nicaragua ciinal regard- 
less of tho Cliiytoi'.-Bulwer treaty. The 
reason given for the committee's action 
was that it would bo discourteous to 
Great Britain to take his action while 
the Hay-Pauncefotc trci.ty Is still pend- 
ing before the British gox'ernment.

ing more interesting than last year. 

Berlin. Feb. 20.— The correspondent 
here of the Associated Press under- 
stands that the oliject of the recent 
conference which United States Am- 
bassador White had with the secretary 
for foreign affairs. Baron Von Richoff, 
was the prevention of petty seizures of 
territories and the obtaining of spe- 
cial privileges in China by separate 
powers. The United States is seeking 
Germany's support for joint action up- 
on the part of the powers in order to 
obtain what is needed for the proper 
security of their diplomatic and com- 
mercial interests in China. It is be- 
lieved the United States and Germany 
are in full accord on this subject. 

The German foreign office says Field 
Marshal Count Von Waldersee's expe- 
dition is to be coffined to the province 
of Pi-Chi-Li urjless the obduracy of the 
Chinese government makes an exten- 
sion to Sian Fu of the military move- 
ment necessary. The expedition is in- 
tended to bring pressure to bear on the 
Chinese court in order to bring about 
the full acceptance of the demands 
made through the ministers of the 
powers at Pekin. The Chinese peace 
commissioners immediately telegrai>hed 

news of the projected military move- 
ment to Slan Fu and the latest reports 
indicate that the st -p taken is having 
the desired effect. It Is supposed at 
the foreign office that the expedition is 
a German movement, but is In the 
common interests of the powers and is 
unanimously sanctioned by the forelpn 
ministers, including Mr. Conger. 

The Frankfurter Zeitung says an ex- 
pedition into the interior would be ad- 
venturous and calculated to open the 
eyes of the mo."»t credtilous concernins: 
the dangers Germany runs in avenging 
the murder of Baron Von Ketteler. The 
paper expresses distrust of Germa.|^ s 
calm treatment of the matter since. 
"What guarantee liave we that the gov- 
ernment which u.^ed tlie opportunity of 
the murder of two nlissionaries for 
seizing territory of a friendly power in 
time of peace will not ';find an occasion 
in the murder of a minister for far- 
ther seizures?" 

The Lokal Aozcigeni commenting on 
the report that, the Utiited States o!)- 
jects to the expedition says: "The 
United States is mefelj- pursuing pur- 
poseless and ill-time-l intrigues which 
make a specially unpleasant impression 
in view of the diminutive force of the 
United States in Chi la."

decided to establish an office and perfect 
plans for increased efficiency in the au-

Ne Action on Babcock's 

Bill to Reduce Duties 

on Steel. 


Conferees on Revenue Re* 

duction Bill Net Yet 

Ready to Report. 

Washington, Feb. 20.— The waj-s and 
means committee of the house held a 
length session today but did not have oc- 
casion to take up the revenue reduction 
bill as the conferees were not ready to 
make any statement on Us prospects. The 
tariff reduction bill of Mr. Babcock of 
Wisconsin taking off the duties on most of 
the articles In the iron and steel schedule 
of the Dlngley act, was referred to the 
sub-committee on customs. It is hardly 
expected that anything can be done on a 
measure of this far-reaching character 
at this late day of the session. 

The proposition to have one appraiser 
Instead of two at Boston and Pliiladel- 
phla and to increjise the salary of the of- 
ficial retained was lost on a tie vote, and 
similar action resulted on a proposition 
to consolidate the Chicago appraiser's of- 

The bill allowing government moneys to 
be kept in government depositories In Ha- 
waii was favorably acted on.

A Mora Serious Gharc« Will 

Ba Brought Aialnt 


Manilla, Feb. 20. — It has been learned 
that Rustan, who was arrested, fur- 
nished the insurgents with supplies and 
information concerning the American 
troops and their movements, as well as 
with money. He dealt directly with the 
rebel general. Callles, wtio has been 
operating continually in the district 
east of Manilla. Mr. Webb, the book- 
keeper of the Philippine Trading com- 
pany, has made a partial confession to 
the effect that certain Belgians residing 
in Manilla and the P>ay Lake district 
were implicated in the plot of Jan. 17 
to kill Capt. Jones, commanding the 
American troops stationed in the town 
of Bay. 

Another force of Insurgents will soon 
be deported to the island of Guatu. 

Many of the discouraged insurgents 
in the provinces are coming In Individu- 
ally and surrendering their guns.

appropriation bill. The committee en- 
dorsed the action of its sub-committeo 
in adding the Spooner Philippine amend- 
ment to the bill. There was no discus- 
sion of the amendment in committee, 
but a vote was taken upon it. The vote 
resulted 5 to 4, the division being on 
party lines. 

The committee also Inserted an 
amendment providing that appoint- 
ments under the army reorganization 
iaw to fill original vacancies in the 
grade of captain In the quartermaster 
subsistence and pay department may be

commissioned since April 21, 1898, and 
now In the service. 

Another amendment strikes out the

diers' d<*poslts, made by the bill as it 
passed the house, and -appropriates $50,- 
000 to pay interest on the deposits.

Jury Brings In a Vertllei oi 

ManslaughtBr and 

Urges Mercy m 

Penally Is From Five to 
Twenty Years In Stato 


Minneapolis. I'eb. 20.— The Jury in the 
case of Minnesota against Frank H. 
Hamilton, cha-ged with murdering 
Leonard I^ Da>, after forty hours' de- 
liberation, furnished a genuine surprise 
by coming into court a few minutes 
before 10 o'clocic this morning and re- 
porting that it had agreed on a verdict 
of manslaughte- In the first degree, 
with a recommeadation to the mercy of 
the court. The jury had been out so 
long that hope of agreement had about 
been given up. The Jury informed the 
deputies at 9:15 that it had agreed, but 
it took half an hour to arrange the pre- 
liminaries. Hamilton was brought down 
first. He had ?njoyed a good night's 
sleep and was ir excellent spirits. 

He seemed dized when the verdict 
was announced and made no other sign 
than to shake his head in mute protest. 

He was at orce remanded to jail to 
await sentence, and absolutely refused 
to see anyone ej cept his devoted friend. 
Miss Johnson, o ! ColoradD Springs. 

His attorneys at once moved for a 
new trial, but nj date was set for hear- 
ing the argumerta. 

When the prisoner reached the jail he 
said to Jailer Alexander, with a de- 
spairing gestUH!: "They've found me 
guilty, captain, l)Ut I don't deserve it." 

The penalty ft r the crime of which he 
is convicted is Imprisonment from 5 to 
20 years. 

The homicide for which Hamilton has 
been convicted occurred in the West 
hotel billiard hall, shortly after 2 
o'clock, Sunday morning, Nov. 25, and 
it Is a peculiar circumstance that the 
two men then net for the first time. 
That there was a woman in the 
was established at the trial, and also 
the fact she waj the cause of consider- 
able ill feeling between the two young 
men. Day was in Europe when Hamil- 
ton met her, and upon reaching New 
York was told that the newspaper man 
was paying her attentions. Shortly 
after his arrival here he expressed the 
desire to meet riamilton, and this was 
carried to the man he considered his 

rival. The meeting between the tw^ 
at the W^est hotel was purely accidental, 
Hamilton had completed his night'* 
work, and upon going home stopped at 
the West hotel. Day was engaged In 
a game of billiards with several friend». 
He learned Hamilton was present, an* 
asked some mutual friend to introdnc* 
them. A scuffle followed, but the men 
were parted. Day remarking that he 
would talk to Hamilton later. The bil- 
liard game was resumed, but the two 
again came together. Day and Hamil- 
ton clinched and fell to the floor, antf 
Fred George parted them. During this 
scuffle George's hand was cut. Day 
regained his feet and staggered to a, 
billiard table, where he rested a fe^ 
seconds and then sank to the floor. Wil- 
liam Bennett, A. M. Barbe, a St. 1/^uis 
traveling man, Guy S. Canfleld, Day 
and Hamilton were tlie only persons in 
the room at this time, for the others 
all ran away. 

It was apparent that Day was mor- 
tally wounded, and Bennett shouted in 
his ear; "You're dying.'' Tho stricken 
man did not utter a word, and Bennett 
and Hamilton knelt by the body in 
silent prayer. 

Previous to this Hamilton had re^ 
moved Day's shoes, and rubbed his 
feet and limbs. Dr. W. B. Murray was 
called, but when he arrived at 2:33 
o'clock. Day was dead. Death was dup 
to a knife stab in the left shoulder, 
which severed an arterj-. Hamilton re- 
mained in the room and made no at- 
tempt to escape. The police were stim- 
moned and he was placed under arrest, 
and in charge of Oflicer Rooney. He 
was later removed to the central police 
station, where he spent Sunday in a 

The same day the coroner's jury laid 
the death of Day to Hamilton, and he 
was arraigned in the municipal court 
Monday on a charge of murder In the 
first degree. He waived examination. 
After examining witnesses three days 
the grand jury returned an indictment 
against him Dec. 11. Hamilton waa 
lirought into court the next day and a 
stay of proceedings was granted until 
Dec. 20. when a plea of not gruilty w aa 
entered and the case finally set for the 
trial which has now been concluded 
with a verdict of guilty. The testi- 
mony of Ofllcer Rooney, who as'serted 
that Hamilton confessed to him that he 
killed Day and related the <'ause of 
their differences, was probably what 
brought about his conviction.

To Be Provided For West Point, Where 

Cadets Can Become Familiar With All 

Types of High Ordnance. 

WashTlnffton, Feb. 20.— (Special to Thp 
HeralJ.)— The West Point military 
cad nj will soon have a modern sea- battery, where cadets may have 
practical instruction in handling mor- 
tars and large guns and become famil- 
iar with large types of high ordnance 
used in the system of coast defense and 
in the field. 

The academy's equipment of ordnance 
for years has been ob.solete. The same 
conditions at Annapolis. The cost 
of the new batttry at A'cst Point will 
not exceed $67,(M)0. and in a letter sent 
to Secretary Root, Gen. Corbin draws 
attention to tti ; U'^eds of the institution 
In this respect. This letter is as fol- 

'1 have the honor to call your atten- 
tion to the fact that the armament of 
the present battery at the military acad- 
emy at West Point ib competed o^ guns 
of an obsolete pattern, and is conse- 
quent'y of vew Utile use in the instruc- 
tion of cadets who, up.n graduation. 
«re t>> be called ur>on to handle the 
modern and improved guns, totally dif- 
ferent in their construction and manipu- 
latior Tho superintendent of the 

academy has recommended, and the 
necessity is apparent, that there be con- 
ttructei it ih-:? enr'iest dTto possible a 
molern an'i model seacaast battery at 
"West Point for the thorough instruction 
of the cadets, to be composed of one S- 
Inch breech-loading ritle on a disappear- 
inr; carriage, one S-incli lifle on non- 
disai)pe.iring carriage, one 6-inch gun, 
one HJ-iMiunder and one 12-inrh mortar, 
these guns, mortars and carriages to 
be of the latest approved types at the 
time of Installation, and breech mechan- 
ism of the 8-inch gun to embody tho 
latest types of breech closure. 

"The emplacements for the 8-inoh 
gun to conform to those employed in 
actual service on the sea coast, with 
reduction in the thickness of the con- 
crete and exterior sl<ipe3, as It is nev»r 
contemplated the battery will be ex- 
posed to hostile fire. They should he 
complete In every particular, with 
typical magazines, ammunition service 
searchlights and facilities for vertical 
and horizontal fire. 

"I have, therefore, the honor to urge 
that an appropriation of $167,000 i»e 
made for this purpost^. Capt. Kuhn, 
corps of engineers, at the academy, a 
most competent and efUcient expert of- 
ficer, estimates that the battery can iie 
mounted ftir this purpose. The ord- 
nance department can furnish the guns 

from those now in stock.'' 
* • • 

No other military force of the world 
supports an artillery arm with an of- 
ficer of so low a rank in command as 
the new reorganization act specifies. 
There is bitter comment at the rank of 
chief of artillery not being abov-? 
colonel, and it is said that in any other 
army this ofilce would be one for a 
major general, at least. Tho artillery 
arm comprises nearly 20,000 men, cr 
practically the strength of the entire 
regular army a few years ago, when | 
ur^r up to its full enlistment, and for j 
this ai"my a colonel is in charge with 
duty on the staff of the general com- 

In army organization the rule has 
been to have a major general nlways in 
command of a corps, and artillerymen 
say that as their l>ranch is now a corps 
and regimental formation abandoned. 
at leapt a lirlgadior. if not a major gen- 
eral. :-h«iuld be in command. 

Cen. Shafter was a major general of 

volunteers, with several major generals 
in command of divisions during the 
Santiago land fight, when his total force 
never exceeded 20,000 t loops, and at the 
tw^ginning was scarcely above 15,0<J0. 
Complaint is made by the artillery that 
this branch has suffered when army 
plums were dislri.'Ute'.l ever since t'ne 
(ivil war. and in out one instance ha.=i a 
colonel iif artillery in that time, prior to 
the Spanish war, become a brigadier by 
transfer. It is eald that the appoint- 
ment of Gen. W. A. Kobbe will not be 
charged to that arm. His appointment 
is regarded as coming from the volun- 
teers, in which he has served during the 
Philippine troul)le. and although a 
major in the regular army, he has held 
higher volunteer rank for two yea'-s. His 
appoir;tinent may result in the .-^ele-.Hl on 
of two artillery officers to be briga- 
dicred, in which case the selection will 
result in the advancement of Col.*?. F. J^. 
Guenther and J. J. Rogers, and it is 
likely that the former will go upon the 
retired list shortly after his advance- 

Col. Guenther would retire for age in 
Febru-ary, 1902, and Col. Rogers in April, 
1903. The latter has been spoken in con- 
nection with the new ofilce of chie'" cf 
artillery, but it is understood that with 
his .Selection for a brigadier general the 
f;hi.'f of artiller>- will be Col. W. A. 
Randolph, who is well (jualifled for the 
pla;e jand remains in active service un- 
til June, 1930. 



The Only Way BovernmenI Hat Ex- 
pratted Its Distent. 

Washington, Feb. 20.— The state de- 
partment has not yet found it necessary 
to address Itself to any of the European 
governments or Japan through their 
foreign otlicers respecting its dis.sent to 
the proposed military campaign in 
China. The only influence brought to 
bear upon the powers by the state de- 
partment in that direction has been ex- 
erted through Minister Conger, who al- 
ready has expressed himself to the 
other foreign ministers at Pekin. The 
state department last night sent a copy 
of the instructions given to Mr. Conger 
to our dii)lomatie representatives at 
each of the capitals of the Interested 
powers. Rut it is stated that this was 
done with the ?o1p purpose of keeping 
our representatives thoroughly informed 
of the progress of the negotiations, and 
in no case were they instructed to make 
this Conger dispatch the basis for direc^t 
communications with the governments 
to which they are accredited. Gen. 
diaffee's course has been entirely dp- 
proved and he has been notified to that 
effect. Minister Wu was again at the 
state department to<lay in search of in- 
formation. He had none to give. 

Usually, after a city election, there is 
several weeks of political anxiety in re- 
gard to appointments, but this year 
there are so few plums for distribution 
there is scarcely anything on that a big 
stretch of imagination could possibly 
call a fight. 

Notwithstanding the big Republican 
majority in the council, H. W. Cheadle 
will, in all probability, succeed himself 
as city clerk. West End Republicans 
have a candidate and are making quite 
a stir in his behalf. He is now a mem- 
ber of the county auditor's office train- 
ing school for officeholders, and would 
undoubtedly make an excellent official, 
as have all the other men that have 
graduated from the auditor's office, but 
an impartial canvass of the council 
shows that Mr. Cheadle is a strong 
favorite, especially with the old alder- 

The only reason given for this is that 
they have learned the value of having 
a clerk thoroughly familiar with the 
affairs of the city, and particularly the 
new charter, the council business and 
the clerk's office. Last year a change 
was made in the city clerk's office for 
one month and that proved four weeks 
too long for members of the council 
that had to put in two hours at meet- 
ings which ordinarily would have bem 
cleared up in three-quarters of an hour. 

Another argument against the West 
End candidate is that the West End now 
has tho a.ssistant city clerkship, and 
West Duluth has the other clerical po- 
sition in connection with the office. 
Geograj.hlcally, it is for some of the up 
town wards to dictate the selection of 
city clerk, according to the ideas of cer- 
tain aldermen of both parties. 

In regard to the office of engineer 
there has been some talk of a fight, but 
there has been more or less of this kind 
of talk for the past year. Mr. McGil- 
vray, the present incumbent, is to all 
intents and purposes a Democrat, but 
he is not a man that takes politics into 
his ofilce. There are strong indication.'? 
that if another man is appointed to suc- 
ceed him, the new appointee would 
have hard work to secure confirmation, 
not that the council would be unfavor- 
able to any other good engineer, but 
there is much work that Mr. McGilvray 
has under way which taxpayers anj 
cei tain aldermen feel would be to the 
best interests of the city to have fln- 
i-jhed up before a change is made in the 

There have been constant rumors that 
John Flood would be succr?ed'^d on the 
board of public works by another Dem- 
ocrat. This is nothing but rumor and R. 
S. Munger's name haa Ijeen mentioned 
as the possible appointee. Those that 
claim to know say that J. B. Scovllle 
of the Fifth ward is now on the slate, 
and others predict the selection of A. 
N. Hopkins, of the West End. Mr. 
Scovllle is from the same ward that 
Mr. Flood come from.

Duluth, explret^ as a member of the 
board of fire commissioners and the in- 
dications are that he is to suiceod him- 
self, as will probably B. Sllberstein on 
the board of park commissioners. 

The term of Giles Gilbert expires both 
on the I library board and water and 
light l>oard. E. C. Little's term as civil 
service commissioner is also out next

Rabal Foroas Hold Positions Near 
Railroad LInsa. 

Kingston, Jamaica, Feb. L'.).— The British 
sfteamer Loulslanlan, Capt. EMwards, 
which arrived here today from Coloin, 
Columbia, roports that when she left the 
latter port Monday, Feb. IS, the rebel 
forces' still held their positions In the vi- 
cinity of 'the railroad lijio between Colon 
and Panama, but that there had been no 
iierious fighting. Liberal sympathizers 
attempted to »t<t fire to the town of Boras 
Del Toro, a fortnight ago. A policeman 
discovered the plot just as a powdeo- train 
was about to b" ignited. The discovery 
created consternation In the town. Tlie 
streets are now patrolled nightly by tL»i 
business men of the community who in- 
clude niany Americans. 


An old lawyer here tells of two amuo^- 
ing things which, he allegof!, occurred in 
Kentucky many years ago, says the 
Louisville Times. On one occasion a 
wealthy man died, leaving a fortune, 
and the heirs became so dissatisfied with 
his will that they went to court to break 
it. One witnes.3 was called who fur- 
nished fun for the crowd. In giving his 
testimony he stated that the de<?>J 
di dnot wish to make a will because of a 
dream he had had. He was intensely 
superstitious, and this vision rather 
datnpened his enthusiasm with regard to 
making a will. "And pray." asked one 
of the lawyers, "what was this remark- 
able dieam >our friend had?' 

"Well, sir," replied the, "he 
dreamed that he made a will, and just 
as he «^igned it he saw a lawyer comifv? 
in the room with a big bag to take ah 
his ni..n( y away." 

At another important trial which kept 
things lively a witness was a vain, con- 
ceited woman, who fancied sh.? could 
teach the lawyers a thing or two. While 
one of thetn was crosrf-examining her 
she became very saucy, grinned at her 
husband, who eat in sight, and rem.arked 
tartly: "Mr. Blank, you needn't worry 
we with them questions; you just can't 
ootch m«." 

"Madam," said the lawyer, "heaven 
knows I don't want to cotch you, and 
your husl>and looks like he was sorry he 
ever did." 

She was swept up .ind carefully re- 
moved from the stajid.

explained that the Andre represented to 
be the Belgian consul and reported to 
have fled from Manilla to avoid arrest 
on a charge of assisting the rebels is 
not a Belgian, nor is he a full-fledged 
consul. He was a resident merchant of 
Manilla and acted as a sort of business 
agent for the Belgian government, which 
does not feel that it should be charged 
with the responsibility f^r his political 
actions. It is stated at the legation that

Finds a Food That the Children and 
erown Folks Thrivs Upon. 

Mrs. Sarah Lessinger, near Stuart, 
Neb., says: "My little girl, S years old, 
has always been a delcalte child, and 
has not l>een able to stay in school long 
a t a time, for she often fainted and was 
weak and puny, until last Februarj .-he 
had a sick spell, and I began feeding her 
on Grape-Nuts food. 

•I can truthfully say the result has far 
exceeded mv expectations. She is now 
heartv. well, and can run and play as 
other' children do. I am trying an ex- 
periment this summer on leaving out 
meat altogether for breakfast and using 
Grape-Nuts food instead. Thus far we 
have all been unusally well, and my 
men folks (we are farmers) f!ay that 
they do not get hungry so quick when 
they use Grape-Nuts food as they used 
to when they had meat." 

It is a profound fact that Grape-Nuts 
food will furnish more nourishment t<-.

can prove the truth of this etatement by 

Cambridge. Mass., Feb. 20.— A sugges- 
tion has been made from Harvard observ- 
atory regarding the observation of varia- 
ble stars, of special interest to astronom- 
ers, but marking for the general reader a 
striking phase of the "new astronomy, ' 
as It Is sometimes called, one character- 
istic of which is a general co-operation in 
the gathering of astronomical facts, it 
Is in the line of dividing the great amount 
of work atending research in astronomy 
and saving thereby a duplication of effort. 

Variable stars are. In some respeciA, 
among the most Interesting objects in the 
heuveiis, as it is felt that a good undci- 
standlng of the cause of the changes 
would thow great light on cosmic laws. 
This could be said, of course, of any as 
yet unexplained fact in nature, but va- 
riable stars afford a wide Held for obser- 
vation, with relatively simple appliances; 
a field where the amateur, for cxampie, 
could, by some little training, do work 
really worth while. 

The number of known variable stars of 
long pi-riod, according to the Harvard cir- 
cular, is now so great and Increasing so 
rapidly that the observation of them has 
been greatly negle.jied. Observations by 
Argelanders method are so easily made 
that they are especially adapted to 00- 
servers who, for obvious reasons, cannot 
use precise photometric methods. 

Arge'.ander's metho<l. It may be said, is 
th«t of the visual comparison of the mag- 
nitude of sturs, the observer selecting lor 
comparison with a given star two other 
near-by stars, one of which is a trill* 
brighter than the observed star. 

To facilitate and to systematize co-oper- 
ation. It is proposed that observers use 
similar charts, issued by some central 
t-'tation— in this particular plan issued by 
Harvard ob.<ervatory. The use of Father 
Hagan's charts are almost Indispensable 
for observnig stars fainter than the ninth 
magnitude, but there Is need of charts on 
a smaller scale and covering a larger le- 
gion of the sky for use with brighter 
stars. After various experiments, pho- 
tographic enlargements have been made 
of portions of the Bonn Durchmusterung. 

A region three degrees square arounil 
each variable star has Iteen enlarged three 
times, giving a map on a standard scale 
of one minute of arc to one millimeter. 
Charts like these can be furnished at cost 
to those Interested, or free of cost to 
exi>erlenced observers willing to co-oper- 
ate in the work. The stars thereon appear 
large by daylight, Ijut can be readily seen 
at night without the use of a light likely 
to dazzle the eye. 

Certain stars have been selected for 
which magnitudes are assigned and ar- 
ranged In a .se<iuence for the use of those 
unaccu-stomed to estimate by gra.dcs. 
From these the observer may estimate di- 
rectly the magnitude of a variable star. 
A list of seventy-two varilble stars has 
been selected for the foregoing, and If the 
plan proves successful It is ho!)ed it may 
be extended to other variable stars of 
long periodk 


How Gravel Train Stopped It On 
Down Grade. 

"In the .spring of 1S90 while I was run- 
ning the gravel train on the Pecano moun- 
tain," said the fat engineer, in the New- 
York Sun, "We were on the grave pit 
switch one day when the telegraph oper- 
ator brought me a dispatch from the su- 
perintendent reading something like this: 
" -Condtictor and fiJnglneer Extra 44, 
Pit: Engine IfiO is running away down the 
mountain closely following No. 1. the fast 
Western express. Get in t>etween them 
and stop the 109 some way.' 

"No 1'j9 was a new compound locomo- 
tive. I knew It would be no easy thing to 
corral her. We could throw the gravel- 
pit switch against her, but that wouldn't 
cause her to jump the track as the switch 
was connected with the main track by a 
split switch with the points facing west. 
The runaway engine coming down the 
mountain would da«h through the P"^'"tf. 
break them and not leave the rall.s. The 
168 had much larger driving wheels than 
the class of engines then hauling passen- 
ger trains and if she left Pecano two 
miles behind No. 1, she'd probably make 
ui) a mile in the .seven-mile run down to 
the gravel pit. From Pecano down it was 
a general down grade for about twenty- 
five miles and unless something got in be- 
tween th.»m No. lt» would .surely butt into 
No 1 before thev reached the bottom. I 
didn't see where 1 was going to have 
much of a show with the small drivers of 
44, but It was worth a try at any rate 

"When No. 1 whizze<l liy the gnivel-plt 
switch we slipped out right behind her. In 
the excitement our conductor forgot to cut 
our engine off from the car? of sand and. 
when I glanced back as we pulled out on 
the main line and sraw that 1 had seven 
loaded gravel cars tagging on behind me 
I used some pretty hot language. Here 1 
was handicapped with these cars and go- 
ing to try to catch a runaway. \\ e could 
hfSr the flvlng 169 rumbling through the 
cuts coming down the mountain after us. 
"About four miles below the gravel-pit 
switch the down-grade eased off, and for a 
mile or so was a trifle against a train go- 
ing If I could keep ahead of 169 till 
she struck this piece I thought it would 
slacken her speed sufficiently to allow me 
to let her come up against us and climb 
back over her running board and stop her. 
but those cars of sand were against this 
plan Ibjwever. I knew that if the big 
machine did ram us we fellows on the 
engine would have more chance to get out 
alive than if we only had a light engine 
and IfiS ran Into our tank. 

"I jerked the throttle of my engine wide 
open after wv wore fairly on the main 
track and the small drivers of 44 seemed 
to leap from the rails, but notwithstand- . 
in'' the fp.<t that we soon attnined a good | 
speed the runaway engine was rapidly 
eainliig on us. I had to watch the flying 
engine behind and No. 1 ahead, and I de- 
termbKKl if we got too uncornfortabl> 
near the paspeng«>r train 1 would stop my 
engine, jump off and let things take care

One cold, gusty December evening a 
man was struggling along against the 
wind, his overcoat buttoned to the neck, 
says Tit Bits. He was rather anxioiis to 
know what time it was, but he was too 
lazy to unbutton his coat in order to get 
at his watch. 

Just then he saw a gentleman in the 
distance. When he came up the man 
who wanted to know the time raised 
hifi hat politely and Inquired: "Sir, do 
you know what time it Is?" 

The stranger paused, removed his 
right glove, unbuttoned his overcoat and 
finally pulled out his watch, while the 
cold wind beat against his unj-rotected 
breast. Holding up the watch .-o that 
the light of an adjacent lamp would 
shine on It, he scrutinized it for an in- 
stant, and «aid "Yes," and then pas3?d 
on without another word.

Air the blood in your body passes through 
your kidneys once every three minutes, 

ITie kidneys are your 
blood purifiers, they fil- 
ter out the waste or 
impurities in the blood. 
If they are sick or cut 
of order, they fall to do 
their work. 
Pains, aches and rheti- 
matism come from ex- 
cess of uric acid in the 
blood, due to neglected 
kidney trouble. 

Kidney trouble causes quick or unsteady 
heart bekts, and makes one feel as though 
they had heart trouble, because the heart is 
over-v/orking in pumping thick, kidney- 
poisoned blood through veins and arteries. 

It used to be considered that only urinary 
troubles were to be traced to th<5 kidneys, 
but nov/ modern science proves, that nearly 
all constitutional.diseases have their begin- 
ni'"g in kidney trouble. 

If you are sick yoti can make no mistake 
by firct doctoring your kidneys. The mild 
and the extraordinary effect of Dr. Kilmer's 
Swamp-Root, the great kidney remedy is 
soon realized. It stands the highest for its 
wonderful cures of the most distressing cases 
and is sold on its merits 
by all druggists in fifty-

Senator Butler's Bill To Cut 

Down Pay of Railroads 



Butler Said It Was a Bigger 

Steal Than Proposed 

Subsidy Bill. 

Washington, Feb. 20.— After the sen- 
ate convened today, Mr. Peitigrew 
offered a resolution, which was agreed 
to, directing the commiUee on priating 
to ascertain why the public printer had 
not delivered to the senate liie instruc- 
tions and papers sent to the Paris peace 

Bills to grant land warrants to de- 
scendants of the New York Indians who 
served in the war of 1812. and to pay an 
award of the secretary of the interior in 
favor of the Cherokee Indians, were re- 
ferred to the court of claim's. 

Consideration of the po.=tofRce appro- 
priation bill was resumed at the conclu- 
sion of rountine business. The pending 
question was the amendment of Mr. 
Butler to reduce the pay of railroads for 
carrying the mails an aggregate of 
about 9 per cent. The North Ca.'olina 
senator continued his speech begun on 
Monday. Mr. Butler said he would 
rather see the ship subsidy bill become a 
law than to have the pending bill pass 
containing the present provision tor 
railway mail'pay, as under the pending 
api'ropriation bill a bigger hole would 
be made In the treasury than would be 
made by the subsidy bill. 

Mr. Butler pointed out that according 
to the report of Professor Adams, tiie 
expert of the postal commission, which 
he was having read, 48 per c^nt of the 
amount paid to the railways fir carry- 
ing the malls actually was paid for 
carrying mail pouches. He had often 
wondered, he saiJ. why the leather and 
locks in the mail bags were so heavy. 
"It seems." he continued, "that the rail- 
ways have used tEielr influence to have 
them made heavy because tbem are 
getting the same pay for carrying them 
as th^y are getli:-.e for carrying n-ail 
matter." He thought there would be 
just as much sense in charging the 
weight cf the car against the govern- 

Th3 amendment offered bj' Mr. Butler 
to the postoffice appropriation bill to 
reduce the pay to railways for carrying 
the mall about 9 per cent was Voted 
down by 18 to 51. 

The pneumatic tube amendment has 
been ruled out of the postoffice appro- 
priation bill on a point of order. 

Senator Teller gave notice of an 
amendment he will propose to the St. 
Louis exposition bill, requiring the 
management to close the gates of the 
institution on Sunday.

Tipsy S!re«t Car Losd Causts Great 

A drunken cui.lii t r and several in- 
toxicated passeng^Ts furnished excite- 
ment to sober persons who rode uptown 
on an Eighth avenue trolley car on New 

Year s evening, says the New York Sun. 
Tile ■•"conductor was in the "don't care ' ' 
stage of intoxication. He wished every- I 
bjdy who got on or off the car a happy 
Ntw Year, but he was not dlsjjused o ! 
wait long for s.ow passengers. When | 
the car reached I'ourteenih street, wlitre , 
some people were wailing to Hoard it, ne 
kei)t them back by shouting in st-.-a- 
lorian tones: 

"Stand clear gangway! Freightsh got 
to be discharged 'tore new bag;;age ish 
taken on. All ashort who go 'shore. Now 
—all aboard. Tumtde u^i, my hearties, 
fc'vp lively. This car'sh ai' I'Ctaa grey- 
hound. Can't wait. Two bel.s. Full 
shpeed ahead." 

Then he clanged the bell twice. The 
car started with a jerk, and a woman 
who had had one foot on tae step gave 
a gasp and fell biick Into the arms of 
her escort. The cor went on. Suddenly, 
without warning, a neatly dressed woman 
near the front door began singing. 
"There'll Be a Hot Time in the Old 
Town Tonight." After finishing the song 
she politely asked the conductor to puil 
the bell, as she had reacheil her destina- 
tion. He complied, murmuring: 

"One bed. Go slow. Stop her. Fuil 
shpeed ashtern." 

After the car had come to a stop the 
woman told him to lK>ld it until she had 
sha'Keii hands with every passenger, and 
had wished each one a happy New Year. 
The motorman chmged the gong impat- 
iently, but the grinning conductor would 
not give him the signal to go ahead un- 
til the woman was ready to take her de- 

"Don't hurry, lady," he said, smiling- 
ly; "oceans of time. Wo ain't late.' 

Finally the woman got out with some 
difricuU.v, and two men with dtfterent 
kinds of j.tgs clambereil aboard. As they 
lurched through the now rapidly movinlj 
car the conductor called out: 

"Whtre're yer sea legs, yer land lub- 
bers'^ Steady thar. Belter anchor." 

Just then the car gave a big lurch and 
both were thrown into seats. The con- 
ductor waited consiilerately until they 
had recovered from the shock, and thea 
reeled up to collect the fares. One paid, 
but the other after looking at the cin- 
ductor in a dazed way. esseverte*! with 
drunken dignity that hei hail already 
paid his nickel. The conductor said: 

"Shay. Cap. yer either pays- yer fare er 
ver takes yer departure — shee'.'" Then he 
appealed to the intoxicated man in the 
seat opposite. "Shay, did dls guy pay 
hish fare?" 

"Naw," said the man addressed; 
"leastilwuys. I didn't shee him. anyway, 
1 don't ^are whether he did or n'lt." 

"Thank you, friend, youre a zbflpitle- 
man. " said the conductor. 

"Now look ahere." said the obstinate 
one. indignantly: "I haven't zhe honor 
of ziiat zhentleman's acguaintanc.-. How 
dare vou shay. shir, zhat I didn't pay 
my fare?" With that he made a move 
with his arm as though to annihilate 
I he grave drunkard opposite him. but the 
conductor interposed. 

"Leave zhat zhentleman alone," lie 
said, with dignity; "yer quarrel ish wi' 

By this time the women In the car 
showed signs of nervousness. Bui when 
the obstinate man saw the conductor 
straighten himself, jireparatorj- to eject- 
ing him, he reluctaiitly fished out a nick- 
el, grumbling that he always paid his 
way \sherever he went, and that he had 
traveled, in his da> , farther anv 
conductor on any car, too. After this 
row had subsided an English woman, 
with eyeglasses and a severe mien, asked 
for a "transfare." 

"Shertainly, madam." said the conduc- 
tor, politely. 'Anyw.iy yer want." tien 
he gave the English woman a transfer, 
nnd also gave one to each passanger in 
the car, omitting, however, the formali- 
ty of punching It. "Them transfers are 

good anywhere an<f^-ny "Time," he said, 
wltii a comprehe«sl+* "wave of his hand. 

Things bec£ime menotoftous for a little 
while after thi.". Presei^tly the tipsy 
man who had paid ttls fare under pres- 
sure lurched down the c£ir and ap- 
proached the cpnductois 

"Shay, old fel, no hard feelings, hope. 
Lemme out Sixty-sixth street," he said. 

"Sure, shake,'' said the conductor. 

Then the two shook hands, and when 
Eighty-sixth street was reached the con- 
ductor helped the other out as well as 
he could.

■Wichita. Kan., Feb. .'n. — a motion was 
made today in the district court here by 
attorneys representing Mrs. Nation, the 
joint raider, to quash an indictment for 
wrecking a "joint." The motion was on 
the grounds that the building harbored 
a nuii-ance. Jutlge Dale denied the mo- 
tion and ruled that it made no differ- 
ence what business was being conducted 
in the building, the owner of which is 
the complainant in the case.

■U'hiU' the first <tone of Cologne cathe- 
dral was laid on Aug. 15, 124S, and tiie 
body of the editice was not opened uuid 
Aug. 15. 1S48 fiOil years hiter to the very 
dav, it was not, however, until Aug. Ij. 
ISW, that the splendid structiffe was finally 
completed, having thus occupied in build- 
ing the record time of exactly 6:<2 years. 

The castle of Kinpsgoberg, which stands 
at the southern extremity of Jutelanu, 
took 2i>4 vears from the l.iying of the foun- 
dation stone to the rigging of its master's 
banner on its highest Ibigstaff. Its f<iun- 
dation stone was the skull of its builder s 
bitterest enemv. Three months after it.- 
laying Count /horsing the builder of the 
castle, was killed. His son was then in 
swaddling clothes. He did not continue 
his father's work until aged 24. 

On his twenty-fifth birthday he was 
thrown into prison by the son of the man 
whose skull lav in the earih as Kingsgo- 
berg's foundation stone. In this manner 
master after master of Kingsgoberg .was 
stopfnd putting an'ther stone toward the 
comidetion of the founder's work till civ- 
ilization intervened. 

Between Perth ar.J Kingussie in Scot-

Land's End road .= tands Murthley < a.s- 
tle, a magnificant Elizabethan structure, 
designed in the early part of the present 
ceniurv. It is not likely to be finished, 
huwever, building experts declare, for at 
least another decade, says Stray Stories. 

Only a few miles distant, on the same 
main'rcad is the vast, unfinished palace 
of :he dukes of Athol. It was begun by 
the fourth duke, who died in ls,30. who 
planned it on the most (^jipaptuous style. 
When completed it will^e one of the 
finest private residences in the kingdom. 

For over twentv years Lord Bute ha.s 
been busllv building a great mansion on 
the island" of that name. It is not yet 
completed, nor likely lu lie lor another ten

Spectacles and eyeglasses are much 
benefited by a bath now and then — not a 
mere wiping or rubbing with chamois or 
tit:sue paper, but a real good bath, says 
the Pittsburg Dispatch. The process is 
simiple. Have a basin of warm water, a 
cake of soap and a soft tooth or nail 
brush: put the glases into the basin and 
leave them to soak for a little while, 
then apply soap freely and rub it off 
with a brush. After this give them a 
polish with any ordinary tooth powder, 
and finally clean them with tissue p^per. 
Occasionally a few drop.s of ammonia in 
the water in which they are given their 
bath will be found excellenL

A Ffw Intemting Stories of Cam- 
paign Sptakers. 

I think we cmpaignera generally attrib- 
ute an exodus from the hall while we are 
talking either to the hot night, or to the 
trains which are just about to leave, or 
else to a conspiracy set on foot by the 
opposite part.v, says Hon. William D. 
p-aulke in the Forum. But sometimes we 
cannot flatter ourselves with these Il- 
lusions. I remember making an address in 
my own state, illustrated— as I thought— 
I'y a few apposite quotations. The au- 
dience listened attentively for more than 
two hours. 1 made substantially the same 
.»^l>ee(h a few da\s later In a. little country 
town in Maine, but I noticed that my lie ir- 
ers were restless and that a number of 
them left the hall. Next morning, while 
sitting on the i>orch of the village inn, 1 
overheard two countrymen who met in 
the dusty square in front: 

"V\'as you to the meetln' last night. 
Neighbor Jenkins? " asked one of the 

"Yaas." was the answer. 

"Did you hear the speaking?" 


"How was It?" 

"Oh, 'twan't no account. 'Twas mostly 

"Do tell:" 

The point of a story is often the signal 
for an outburst, and no one can deny the 
I)ower of apposite illustrations. The para- 
tles of the Hible and the stories of Lincoln 
have in them a pitii and a point which 
could not be as well made in any other 
way. Yet many spe.ikers are tempted, 
not to make the story the illustration of 
tlie speech, but to make the speech a mere 
Viotpourri of stories. The man who does 
this may be amusing, but in the long run 
he will not be taken seriously; and If he 
be unfamilinr with his audience he Is '.ik-i-ly 
10 tread on somebody's toes without In- 
tending it. 

In the campaign when James D. "Will- 
iams ftnd Iknjamin Harrison were op- 
posing candidates for the governorship of 
lndi;ina. we Republicans used to make 
great fun of "ISlue Jeans." as we called 
him. ridiculing his rustic manners and his 
homespun ways. We didn't make much by 
it, for the peojde of Indiana were mostl.v 
farmers; and after he had been elected 
and had made an honest, respectable and 
.sensible governor, our campaign jokes 
looked rather pitiful in retrospect. One 
night I spoke at a small neighborhood 
meeting, and repeated to my audience the 
ffdlowing story which waa going tht: 

Mr. Williams, who was then a member 
of congress, was one da.v washing his 
hands at one of the lavatories in the cap- 
itol, when an attendant handed him three 
towels. He sighed at such wonton ex- 
travagance and exclaimed: "Why, down 
at my farm I make a single towel last the 
whole family a week." 

This was a prett.v poor story, but for all 
that. I was astonished to see that' there 
was not a smile upon any of the faces 
before me: indeed, the countenances took 
on even a deeper gloom. On my way home, 
as we drove through the woods, my com- 
panion said to me: 

"You didn't make a great hit with your 
story about 'Blue Jt ans' ' family towel." 

"No, I didn't seem to." 

"Do vou know why?" 


"Well, ril telll you. There wasn't a 
farmer in that crowd that hadn't done the 
same thing himself! " 


On the day Mr. Quay was reinducted 
into the senate, and a large crowd of all 
thoee entitled to the floor swarmed to 
witness the flowers and excitement, a 
tall, determined-looking man, with an 
armful of big books, "oowed pleasantly to 
one of the doorkeepers and entered the 
chamber, says the New I'ork World. He 
bore himself in such a way as to con- 
vince all the attaches, without inquiry, 
that he "vvas entitled to the floor. He 
wgLi looking for Senator Dolliver, and 
found him. 

Without a word of warning he spread 
his Ijooks out on the senator's desk and 
began his little sjieech about the mag- 
nificent pictures, the beauty of the 
paper, the clearness of the typo and the 
value of the twelve-volume publication. 

"Who are you?" gasped Mr. Dolliver. 

"I am a book agent," was the reply as 
the recital continued. 

"How did you get in here?" asked Mr. 

"I came in by the door," was the 

And then Mr. Dolliver unfeelingly 
clapped for a page and sent word to the 
sergeant-at-arms that a stranger was in 
the senate, .^rd soon afterward the ta'.l 
man was ejected- 


The late Grand Duke of Saxe-W^eimar- 
Sereni':=slmus, as he was effectionateiy 
called — had a queer way of expressin.^ 
himself, relates London M. A. P. On a 
hunting expedition he saw a forester 
whose face seemed familiar to him. 

"Are you not a brother of Chief In- 
spector Schmidt?" asked the Dulce. 

"I am Chief Inspector Schmidt,"said 
the man. 

"Ah," said Serenissimus, "that ac- 
counts for the resemblance!" 

Another time the grand duke was 
waiting at a small railway station in his 
tiny realm, and addressing two little 
gills, playing near the signal box, 

"Who is your father?" 

"The stationmaeter." 

"How old are you?" 

"I am 5 and my sister 4, Serenis- 

"How is that possible? Why, the line 
has only been opened three years!"

Boy's Body Found In a Bsrrol 

Whore Ho Sought 


■Watertown. Mass., Ftb. 20.— The body of 
'James Monahan, the T-year-old son of 
Mr. and Mrs. Patrick Monahan, of Vine- 
yard street, Cambridge, who mysteriously 
disappeared from his home, on Friday, 
Teh. 8, was found in an ampty ash barrel 
In the rear of the Watertown starch fac- 
tory, on netisant street, this city. How 
"the unfortunate lad met his death is a 
anystery, but it is believed that he lost his 
■vs'ay in the storm and sought the barrel 
•for ."helter. There he froze to death. 

The spot where the body was discov- 
ered is fully four miles from the boy's 
home, and nearly that distance from 
■where he was last seen alive. The discov- 
ery was made by Thomas AVade. AVade's 
attention was attracted to a hen crack- 
aing near a barrel against the building, 
and, looking into it. he was horrilied to 
•ee the body of a small b. )y. 

A hasty examination showed that life 
%pa8 extinct. Medical Kxamlnt-r Mead 
fafled to rtnd any traces of violence and 
"Was unable to tell how long the boy had 
been dead. 

The body was frozen stiff. Monahan left 

his home shortly before noon on Friday, 
Feb. 8, to take his father's dinner to the 
■\Vatertown arsenal, where the latter is 
employed. The day was cold and windy, 
and after leaving his father he started to 
return home. At nightfall he had not re- 
turned, and the police were notified. An 
active search was made, but no trace of 
him could be found. 


Steva L'Hommedlau Threattns H«ad 
of Detaetiva Agancy. 

New Orleans, Feb. 20.— Steve L'Hom- 
medieu, the well-known racehorse man 
and plunger, attempted to shoot Robert 
Pinkerton, the detective, in Lamothe's 
restaurant Monday- morning, but was 
disarmed and ejected from the place. 

Robert Pinkerton was eating break- 
fast in company with his brother, Will- 
lam, who is head of the Pinkerton 
agency in Chicago, when L'Hommedieu 
entered the restaurant, and after .greet- 
ings had been exchanged he sat down at 
the table with them. He accused Robert 
Pinkerton of "having it in for him," and 
blamed him for his disbarment from the 
Eastern tracks two ye.irs ago, and said 
that William Pinkerton was responsible 
for his disbarment from the Washing- 
ton Park track last summer. 

The'Pinkertons said they had done no 
more than their duty, and the haad of 

the Eastern branch of the detective 
agency told L'Mommedieu he had 
caught him "with the gotxis on." and 
treated him as he would treat any one 
else who attempted to bribe jockeys and 

L'Homraedieu attempted to draw a 
revolver, but the trigger caught in the 
pocket of his coat, and Lamothe grabbed 
the weapon before any harm was done. 

L'Hommedieu was at the race track 
during the afternoon, and made threats 
of killing the Pinkertons to whoever 
would listen to him. 

William Pinkerton said he would not 
prosecute the plunger. The chief of 
police, however, has issued orders for 
L'Hommedieu's arrest, and he probably 
will have to answer to a charge of mak- 
ing threats and attempting to shoot. 

L'Hommedieu has Imbibed too much 
of the carnival spirit since his return 
from the Texas oil fields, where he tied 
up a good part of his money in oil lands, 
and hi.s betting operations here since his 
return have been disastrous.

And Cat It Mada to Walk tha 

San Francisco, Feb. 20.— After sixteen 
years service on the fish commission 
steamer Albatross, "Jerry," the lighliiis 
black cat of the ihip. with a champion- 
ship record, was buried Monday with Pjll 
naval honors by the crew. The cat. which 
was getting oid, \va.<^ badly injured in a 
recent fight with another ship's cat 
called "The Bl«k Owitltrnian." The crew 
dcH-torcd "Jerry" ind he was on th« road 
to recovery, when his enemy once more 
attacked and killed him. 

The crew held a cnurt-martlil on "J^r- 
rvs" slayer and decided he v.-as guilty of 
n:ar,slaught.:>r. They sentenced him to 
walk the plank, and, having loaded hlni 
with scrap iron, literally carried out the 
str.tence. , , ^. 

The crew took "Jerry," wrapped In the 
Anr.eric.Tn flag, in a lai:.nch to Fort Baker, 
where he was buried with hcnors. The 
chief mourner was Rear Admira. Jlorne,

was mistaken and is wundering now 
where Ue Wet will he heard from next. 
A raid upon Cape Town, while appear- 
ing impo.ssible at this distance, is said 
to be actually feared. 

Kitchener wired yesterday that De

Ic9 Vl^n M Disturbed Over 

Proipsct For the Crop 

of Ice. 


Ukd Ic9 cf Good Doplh— 

Supply Usually Cui In 

February and !Harch. 

The ire men are no longer nervous. 
Ttie lake is already in condition to cut 
ice* near shore, and in a couple cf day.s 
more will be In such candition that it 
can be cut fur a Rond di.stance out. This 
ytar has been very much like most every 
other year so far as the cutting of the 
!<-e crt)p is concerned. As the month of 
February comes and the lake i.s still 
optn. many people besin ti get nervous 
over where the ice cn.p is to come from, 
and have visions nf hiffh prices in the 
summer and scant supply. The ice 
men and the old residents of Duluth 
never set nervous so early as that. If 
March were to come without any ice 
field out in the lake, they mig''it begin 
to f^^nr for the summer supply, but un- 
til then they do not worry much. As a 
matter of fact, most of ice crop 
fn m the lake i? always cut late in Feb- 
ruary and in March. 

At the pre.s«iit time the ice in the lake 
i.« about ei?ht inches thick. With wea- 
ther -fuch as prevails now, ice is form- 
ing rapidly, and it will be only a day or 
two mire before th^re is twelve inches 
and possibly fifteen. Fifteen inches is 
considered a very nice thickness by the 
ice men, and they are even well satisfied 
with twelve. 

The work of cutting the supply is not 
a very long one. The companies figure 
en getting in most of tfie crop in three 
weeks' time. This means the crop of 
domestic ice. Fir storage purposes the 
bay ice can be used, and that can be 
had at any time of the year. It can bo 
taken out of the slips. 

The process employed in cutting ice 
is rather interesting. Instead of using 
teams to haul it into the houses from 
the 1-1 int %\-tiere it is cut, channels are 
cut in the ice and are kept open, and 
through these the ice is towed to the 
r->inl where it is to be hoisted into the 
house. Favorable weather is what the 
Ice man prays for after he begins his 
cutting. He wants still weather so that 
his channel will not be blocked up and 
can be kept open. So Important is it to 
keep this open that men are sometimes 
employed all night in keeping the ice 
from forming in the channel. Sometimes 
this channel will be a half mile and 
stmetimes a mile long. 

The Duluth lee company cuts its crop 
of domestic ice from the reservoir. 
Three crops have already been taken 
off and a fourth one is to be cut. This 
nit^ans about 4000 tons of ice. Last year 
this company cut three crops off the 
re.servoir. a little more t5ian iWO tons, 
and exhaU-ste-d it all. Last summer was 
very warm and the demand on the ice 
supply was much heavier than usual. 
The :^000 tons was insuflfloient and the 
company had to buv 1000 tons outside of

Defandinc a Suit. 

A dispatch from Grand Forks, N. D., 
says; "A heavy damage suit is being ar- 
gued before Judge in chambers tp- 
day. The suit was brought by William II. 
Ulmer, of St. Paul against P. McDonnell, 
of Duluth, and the amount claimed Is' 
about $13,000. McDonnell Is the contractor 
who did all the cedar bleck paving in 
this city. Ulmer claims that in l^iiS a con- 
tract was made whereby he wa.s to fur- 
nish McDonnell 42.000 feet of Dunnville 
stents to be used in this city as curbins; 
26,'>X) feet of this was furnished and used. 
It is claimed by the i>lainlifC he was paid 
$0470. and that at the contract price there 
is still due about $2000. In addition, he 
claims a prolit of 26 cents per foot on the 
15.0<M) feet not accepted by McDonnell, and 
alleges other damages."

Last evening the em.ployes of the 
Great Eastern Clothing house called 
upon Frank Burrows at his home on 
Twelfth avenue '?ast and presented him 
with a fine easy (hair. Mr. Burrows has 
just left the Gres.t Eastern, and the men 
with whom he las been associated ar- 
ranged the affai: to Show their esteem 
and friendship. When he arrived hame 
last evening he found the entire com- 
pany, numberin j about thirty, there. 

and preparations made for a general 
good time, Mrs. Burrows, of course, 
knew of their coming, but Mr. Burrows 
was taken unawares. The easy chair, a 
very handsome one, was presented by 
Alderman Victor Johnson in a few well- 
chosen words. Mr. Burrows, though 
very much surprised, responded grace- 
fully. Supper was then served and the 
evening was very pleasantly passed.

" "a brilliant and im- 

Thf^ IK)sing affair Is the 

Miah i'otirtof i)ermanent court of 
SatinnM. arbitration provided 

for by The Hague con- 
vention. It Is made up of very distin- 
guished representatives of fifteen leading 
nations of the world, and Is now complete- 
ly organized for business, with its formid- 
able array of clerks, secretaries and other 
adjuncts for transacting business. What 
chiefly concerns most people is whether 
this Imposing machine will ever do any- 
thing, or whether it is merely a magnifi- 
cent effigy representing an a.spiratlon for 
peace that the court Itself knows will 
never bo realized. But even if this great 
court be but a huge signboard, covere.l 
with conspicuous names. It represents at 
least a sincere attempt to raise the banner 
of arbitration as a permanent ttxiure 
among the natlon-s. The czar's Invitation, 
at first criticised with snerrs, abuse, ridi- 
cule and indifference, has ripened into a 
permanent high court of nations, which 
may yet take rank with magna charta. 
Runnymede and the declaration of inde- 
pendence. The high court of nations is 
now organized and ready for business. All 
that it waits for Is the common sense of 
the natiins which It represents to solicit 
Its service.s. It is said that with the ex- 
ception of six years England has not been 
out of war during the whole of Victoria's 
reign. Groaning with debt, and 
shame, it is al)out time that some of the 
great pov.-ers set the gage and allow the 
high court of nations lo show what It can 
do. The situation in South Africa seems 
to present an opportunity to demonstritu 
the usefulness and effectiveness of this 
great court. Why should not England bo 
■Willing to submit to this court the points 
in dispute with the Boers and tlius end 
the awful waste of life and money. King 
Edward VII could render his reign illus- 
trious by such action? 

It is time to do jus- 
tice to .Capt. Char'.es Jitstire 
Clark of the hixtile- /or Vajtt. tharlea 

ship Oregon, say his Vlark. 

admirers in tho West. 

All this talk about rocognition of true 
merit sounds ilshy, when it is applied to 
Admiral Sampson and others with a pull 
and such men as Capt. Clark are neglect- 
ed. Here is the way one of his admirers 
states his case: "Everybody knows that 
t^apt. Clark won promotion by his gal- 
lant conduct during the Spanish-American 
war. It was Capt. Clark who commanded 
the battleship Ciregon when it made its 
nuigniflcent race around the Horn to re- 
inforce the fleet off Santiago. It was 
Capt. Clark who cabled the navy depart- 
ment from Rio Janeiro, 'Don't hamper 
me with orders. Tha Oregon can whip 
the whole Spanish fleet." It was Clark 
who Joinetl tlie fleet otY Santiago and an- 
nounced that his magnificent ship was 
ready for duty after ]3,0'3O miles of travel 
at top speed under forced draught. It 
was Capi. Clark who oommnnded the Ore- 
gon during that spltndej fight off San- 
tiago, and it was Capt. Cljrk who chased 
down the Cristobal Colon and made its 
crew strike its colors. Yet despite this 
magnificent record. Capt. Charles Cl.irk 
found after tho war*rt that he was 
actually five numbers lower in grade than 
he was before the war began. The strain 1 
of the trip from Snn Francisco to 
tiago was enough to kill an ordinary man. 
but Clark stood it r.nd fought as grand a 
fight as the world has ever known. What 
was his rewarnl? He saw other and less 
worthy men— lets worthy because less dc- 
Mn.'ing— a.lvan'';.-d wbile he was set InL-^k. 
It is time to do ju.-5lice to gallant 'Charlie' 
Clark. Let us hear less of Sampson, who 
was twenty-five miles awaj- when t'ae 
battle was fought and won. and who got 
a promotion he never earn;.>cl and prize 
money he was not entitled to, and more, of 

the man who commanded the Oi^goii." 
That is certainly a strong argument for 
<'apt. Clark and it would seem fitting that 
Secretary Long should let his pet, Samp- 
son, stand aside for a little, while deserv- 
ing men got their just dues.. 


Unhappy is the man that is traveling 
in a rut. He may not realize his condi- 
tion. He may have fewer W3rries; he 
may be more peaceful and contented 
than he who travels unbroken ground. 
But he is unhappy, and he has a day of 
reckoning ahead. 

It i.s the tendency of man to get Into 
ruts and stay there. Most of them go on 
through life and never see over the tops 
of their individual ruts. It is so easy to 
accept conditions as they present them- 
selves; to let that which is continue. 
For a rut is the line of least resistance, 
and therefore the way that is easiest to 

Kut ruts get deeper and more binding 
as time goes on. Their sides get higher 
until they close out the world of en- 
deavor and ambition. The day corhes 
when t?ie wayfarer finds himself, to his 
great .surprise, far behind his fellows. 
He has been so long in the rut that he 
cannot get out of it, and he dies in its 
lonely depths, unhonored and unsung, 
leaving the world little better for h's 
having been. 

TEie successful men and things of this 
day of strenuous effort and intense 
competition are not the i-esult of ruts. 
He who would win success must seeit 
means to please a jaded public appetite 
that craves evermore for s:)mething 
new, or for something old so completely 
disguised that its aricient flavor cannot 
be detected. The man who would \\ in 
must avoid getting into a rut as he 
would avoid getting into the gutter. It 
is easier to abide in the rut of habit 
than to carve out a new path, but suc- 
cess and ease must be accomplished to- 
gether, if ever. Ease can never precede 

Every word of this that applies to men 
applies to cities as well. The world of 
progress and advancement passes by the 
city in a rut. If it does not strive to 
free itself from that rut it must inevit- 
ably subside there, and that is the end 
of its greatness, for it can be no greater 
than the width of its particular rut. 


The indications at present are that 
the immigration into the Western 
states the coming year will be unprece- 
dented. When reference is made to the 
West, the states of Wisconsin, Minne- 
sota, Nebraska and the Dakotas are 
meant. The far Northwest will receive 
a goodly portion, but the Middle and 
Southwest will be left out of this west- 
ward movement. 

The conditions .surrounding thi."? move- 
ment are very different from that tidal 
wave of 1S85 which inundated the terri- 
tory west of the Red and Missouri 
rivers. At that time vast tracts of 
government land were open to pre- 
emption, and government land has al- 
ways possessed a charm for tho home- 
seeker. There may be better land ad- 
jnining it on the market for the same 
price, but the average settler prefers 
his title direct from the government. 
Now, however, the seeker for a home in 
the West must buy from the speculator 
or from the railroad companies. Uncle 
Sam has but very little land left. A few 
scattered acres i*emain in Wisconsin 
and a few more in Minnesota. The Da- 
kotas have some left, but it is semi- 
arid. The same is true of Nebraska. 
If the Hansbrough bill passes this ses- 
sion it will withdraw from the markst 
for a short time all public lands west of 
the 97th meridian. 

From these conditions it will be seen 
that this wave of immigration will act 
as a filler rather than as an opener-up 
of new territory, aiinnesota and North- 
ern Wisconsin have both many acres 
of the finest farming land in the North- 
west. It is nearly all better adapted to 
sustaining life year after year than the 
region east of the Missouri river in the 
Dakotas. The introduction of the dairy 
and the knowledge that sheep thrive in 
this climate will have a marked effect 
upon the settlement of Minnesota. 

A peculiar thing about this wave of 
immigration is that it arises not in the 
East, but is composed of well-to-do 
farmers from Indiana, Illinois and Iowa. 
They come with money sufficient to buy 
the land, erect buildings and buy stock. 
There will be little or nothing for the 
money shark to do in the new communi- 
ties erected during the coming year. 

The experience of the last fifteen years 
has convinced the emigrant that it is 
better io locate in a partially tinibertd 
country than on the Western plains 
wiiere the seasons are so uncertain. It 
is a little harder to make a start, but 
there is no anxiety about the rain. What 
the farmer sows he can have a reason- 
able expectation of reaping. 

Until the projected systems of irri- 
gation are in working order it is utter 
foolishness for settlers to seek homes 
west cf the 100th meridian. These facts 
concerning the immigration of this year 
are of especial interest to the head of 
the lakes. There is no doubt about the 
proposition that Duluth has been re- 
tarded in her growth by a lack of coun- 
try development. With the country 
south and west dotteJ with towns and 
hamlets supported by a vigorous farm- 
ing population, and the region north 
and west devoted to mining, the city 
would never feel the pinch of hard 
times. The Northwest is developing 
with reasonable rapidity; it is the region 
adjacent to the city tiiat needs atten- 

"Every bachelor who shall remain un- 
married at tho age of 4<J years shall not 
thereafter be allowed to enter into any 
matrimonial alliance except upon payment 
to the state of Connecticut the sura of 
llOO." This Is the substance of a bill intro- 
duced in the Connecticut legislature by 
Kepresentative Standish a few days ago. 
There will be no need of the whipping post 
for wife-beaters if the bill becomes a law. 
The man who lives to be 40 anJ then se- 
lects a $100 wife will never beat her. 

A bill has been favorably reported in 
congress to increase the salaries of th« 
federal officers in Hawaii. This is the in- 
variable practice; always increase, but 

nea'er, or seldom., a decrease. Next, the 
federal officials of Porto Rico, Guam, ajid 
tho Philippines will want— and will get- 
Increases of salary— and what a horde of

The official and clerical force of the Car-

Some one has estimated that the sup- 
port of tramps in the United States costs 
over $25,000,000 .annually, made up from 
contributions by charitable people and 
pilferlngs of the tramp fraternity. .\ny 
Esiimate of this kind must be the merest 
and roughest kind of guesswork, and most 
of what the tramps secure from volun- 
tary contributions cannot be reckoned as 
an appreciable loss, or cost to the public; 
it makes nobody any poorer.

Other countries have brought this little re- 
public to Its senses and the United States

Aged Bank Official Writes a Long, Grateful Letter to Pro- 
prietors of Paine's Celery Gompounil. 

Eighty-two years old, and free from 
aches, pains and feebleness! The last ten 
years of his life Iht iitalthiest he has 

And forty-flve years— a life span for most 
people — of hard work and rc.--ponsibility 
as a bank cashier and treasurer to look 
back upon. 

For the past ten years Mr. Potter has 
never known a day of serious si(■kne^,.s. 
Previous to that time he suffered from 
nervous prostration that clung to him 
for six years. 

That this remarki^ble immunity from 
weakness and disease, at such a time in 
life, has not happened by chance, no one 
knows better than the aged treasurer him- 
self. In June. ]^91. when suffering from a 
number of old olironlc complaints, Mi. 
I'otter was induced by relatives to use 
Paine's Celery Compound for the first 
time. Tho effect was immediately benefi- 
cial. The uninterrupted good health that 
ho has since enjoyed dates from that tline. 
Mr. Potter's grateful letter to tne pru- 
Ijrietors of Paine's Celery Compound is 
based on long personal experience and also 
a full knowledge of what it has done 

for very many of his friends to whom he 
has in turn recommended the great leiii- 
edy that made him well. Mr. Potter's let- 
ter is given in its entirety: 

Centrevllle, R. I. 
Wells, Richardson & Co.,

For recruiting the strength and .spent 
energies of men and women advanced in 
yeans, there can bo no substitute for 
Paine's Celery Compound. It is the one 
Preiwratlon considered worthy tlie name 
of a true nerve food and blood ren;edy 
by physii'ians throughout the country. It 
is prescribed by them in every state in the 
Union to lone up the system, regulate the 
nerves and restore health and sirengtli. 

Nntbing in the has ever approached 
It In power of building up weakened nerve 
tissues and gtving strength to the tired 
body. In severe cases of ijerslstent head- 
aches, dyspepsia, neuralgia and sleepless- 
ness, due to nervous feebleness. Paine a 
I^i' <-^o"iP"u'Hl has a record of rapid 
and lasting cures that embraces every 
city and town in ibe wide sweep of the 
I. nlted Slates. 

Its remarkable power over disea,se lies 
In Its active replacing of worn-out parts 
by new, healthy ones, and its healing and 
purifying action among the most minute 
tissues of the body. 

The htiwry. alarming pain In the ijack 
and loins disappears; the growing pale- 
ness, nervousness, and loss of flesh Is 
stopped, and a bright, buoyant fe«';ing 
gradually takes the place of that unend-

nervous condition invariablv fD'.low the 
use of Paine's Celery Compound.

Grand Forks Young Man Ser- 
iously Burned By Gas 

Grand Forks — There was a serious ex- 
plo.siun of pas in apartments in the 
Union National Bank bk)ck, as a result 
of which Gardie Walker, a young' man, 
was badly burned about the face, and 
the sight of one eye may possibly he 
permanently lost. Walker had lighted 
the gas and after a few moments 
opened the oven door. The oven had in 
some way become filled with gas, for 
an explosion occurred as soon as the 
door was opened. This is the third ex- 
plosion that has occurred in the past 
few days. 

Jamentown — R«v. H. O. Gunn hag'ai«- 

rified his intention to resign as pastor 
of the Presbyteri.^n church and Ae

tive position in sight. He is interested 
in a number of paying British Columbia 

Papers ha^ e been filed in the suit for 
divorce brought by Mary Darliu? 
against Charles W. Darling, of this 
city. Mrs. Darling alleges that her

notwithstanding that she looks after 
him faithfully. He was recently before 
the insanity board, but was discharge'!. 

Snow plows were sent out Monday 
from Jamestown to clear the tracks of 
the Jamestown & Northern and Coo- 
perstown branches on which drifts 
higher than box cars were found. The 
track is cleared with a Russell plow. It 
has not been found necessary to use 
the rotary plow' this year. On the main 

line of the Northern Pacific there has 
been no trouble from snow. 

Mandan — An attempT has just, been 
made to amend the laws so that if for 
any reason the state's attorney of a 
county does not prosecute a criminal, 
there will be no prosecution. Some law- 
was needed by the gambling fraternity 
to fit the prosecution of W. H. Sander- 
son, of Bismarck, who is under bonds 
of ?1000 to answer to a self-confessed 
charge of running a gambling joint at 
Bismarck. The prosecution before the 
committing magistrate was begun by 
Attorney General Corastock. 

Fargo — Fargo is entertaining th-? 
grand encampment of the Odd Fellov/s 
and the state Rebekuh organizations. 
The reports of the officials of the former 
show they have had a prosperous y-^jir 
and the ladies of the latter are more 
encouraged over their work and are 
congratulating themselves on the suc- 
cess of the district plan of organizations. 


Deadwood — Too much reading of dime 
novels caused Robert Bougn. a lo-year- 
old son of Z. Bougn, a prosperous mer- 
chant ot Mmudolijh. Neb., to becon.e 
discontented with his home and run 
away. He was found last week ^n 
Deadwood by his father and there was 
general rejoicing. 

Vermilion — With a desire to settle a 
little family dJ~agTeenient with his 
sister's husband. Ed Stverson broke into 
the house during the family's absence 
and demolished the furniture and every- 
thing else which was breakable. He was 
caught in the act, just as the j'"»b wa« 
about completed, by the hu.sband's 
father and his son. and they at once 
bound him hand and foot and brought 
him to this city. 

Dr. F. W. Cox, of this city, who has 
been appointed assistant surgeon in the 
army, with the rank of captain, will ac- 
cept the position and will probably leave 
Vermilion in a short time. It is believed 
he will be stationed In California. 

Iver Bagstad. a wealthy merchant and 
stockman of Gayville. S. D., has disposed 
of his large properties at that place. 

Hans Myron, of Clay county, was the 
purchaser, and the sum reported to have 
been paid was $30,000. 

Wilmot— Scarlet fever has made its 
appearance, and two children in the 
family of Charles Smith, north of town, 
have died from the disease. The whole 
town has been exposed, as the funeral 
was held in the M. E. church, at this 
place, at which time the ca~ket was 
opened- The schools have closed, and 
all public meetings have been pro- 
hibited. No cases have yet broken out 
in the city. 

Mitchell — Mrs. William Anderson, liv- 
ing a short distance south of town, died 
Monday night as the result of an acci- 
dent. She and her husband were return- 
ing from a neighlwr's when their horse 
ran away. She had an infant in her 
arms and threw it out and then jumped 
herself. As a result she ruptured a 
blood vessel, and before help could be 
secured bled to death. 

Mound City — W. D. McFarland. gen- 
eral merchandise dealer, has co:uluded, 
on account of pressing claims of credi- 
tors, chief among whom is the Powers 
DiT Gotjds company, of St. Paul, to ask 
for a receiver and go into general liqui- 
dation. The sheriff has taken possession 
of the stock of goods on two executions, 
pending the appointment of a receiver, 
or trustees. Mr. McFarland was also 
the proprietor of fhe Campbell County 
Courier, a Populist new.i^p.iper, which 
has suspended publication and. acord-

PrInctiM Orator AdaHs Tkil 

He b BuHly of Brest 



Inthoihinlor Contest Buring 

the Regular Gennence- 

mant Exercises. 

Princeton, ]f. J., Feb. 20.— George 
Washington Kehr, of Harrisburg, Pa., 
has been dismissed from the university 
for gross plagiarism in a speech with 
which he won the first prize in the 
junior oratorical contest last June. The 
offense has just come to light in a pe- 
culiar manner, and because of the rarity 
of such scandals at Princeton has caused 
a stir among the students. 

Kehr was one of the eight contestants, 
and on the decision of the judges was 
presented with the $100 prize during the 
regular commencement exercises. The 
Princeton Literary Magazine, in its next 
publication, which was in October, 1900, 
printed his oration. 

The Lafayette Touchstone, the liter- 
ary magazine of Lafayette college, re- 
ceived a a copy of the paper among its 
exchanges, and the editor recognized 
the oration as one that previously came 
out in the Gettysburg Mercury, the pub- 
lication of Pennsylvania college. Expla- 
nations were demanded of the Prince- 
ton "Lit," the affair was put into the 
hands of the faculty, and on being con- 
fronted with the evidence Kehr con-< 

In order to absolve itself from all 
blame in the plagiarism, the "Lit" pub- 
lishes the following letter from Kehr; 

"Managing Editor of Nassau Lit: My 
Dear Sir — A great injustice has been 
done by me to Mr. Heilman, of Gettys- 
burg, to the university, my class and 
especially to those who took part in the 
oratorical contest last June, and all who 
are proud of belonging to an institution 
where the principles of true Christian 
manhood are taught. I want to frankly 
confess the gra<*s plagiarism of which I 
am guilty, and remove any censure that 
may be brought upon j-our magazine, 
for upon me alone devolves the crime, " 

Kehr was in the class of IJKtl, and 
would have graduated next June. It 
wa-3 at the time a matter of surprise 
that he won the prize, as hj was pitted 
against men who had always been th? 
best in their class. Kehr could hardly 
be so considered.

That Ris Plarod a Promlnont 

Part In How York 


New York, F?b. 20.— Senator T. C. 
Piatt has changed his rooms at the 
Fifth Avenue hotel. For nearly twen- 
ty years the M<cca of Piatt Republicans 
in the state has been Room 280 at the 
Fifth Avenue. This was the number 
of a very fine juite which has been the 
home of Mr. an J Mrs. Piatt almost from 
the hour that Mr. Piatt resigned with 
Rosco Conkling from the United States 

senate. It was from these rooms that 
Mr. Piatt and his friends outlin»d the 
plans and policies which eventually led 
to the overthrow of ex-Senator Warner 
MlUer and the complete rehabilitation 
of Mr. Piatt. Mr. Piatt has conducted 
his best battles from those rooms. From 
them he saw tlie beginning of the great 
stalwart and half-breed fight which 
stung the Republican party in the state 
of New York for thirteen years. It was 
not until Warner Miller was turned out 
of the Republican state convention at 
Saratoga in 189 > that Mr. Piatt's victory 
was absolute. The following year Mr. 
Piatt was elec' ed to the senate. 

Now Mrs. Piatt is dead and Senator 
Piatt has decided that he does not care 
to remain in 2S3. 

There were too many reminders there 
of his recent bereavement. The fur- 
niture Mrs. PlJ tt had purchased, the 
paintings and bric-a-brac she had se- 
lected, the holiday gifts sent them by 
friends, all gave mute testimony of her 
loss with a foice that was not to be 

The suite th.-y had occupied was on 
the fourth floor on the Twenty-fourth 
street side of the building. It comprised 
two bedrooms, .1 bathroom, sitting room 
and a parlor. 

His new rooms are numbered 159, and 
they will be his home winter and sum- 
mer hereafter, he having changed his 
quarters Sunday. SenafST^T'latt said bo- 
fore leaving for Washington that he 
could not begin to express the gratitude 
he felt for all of the kindness that had 
been shown to him during the last few

Doctors Say Everyone Should B« 
Careful— What a New York Special- 
ist Says When interviewed By Our 

Special to The Herald, Feb. 20. 

New York. Feb. 20.— One of the most 
prominent specialists of this city was in- 
terviewed by me today regarding the 
appendicitis epidemic, and he gave out 
the following stat€*ment, but does not 
wish to have his name published, claim- 
ing it would be unproff.sslonal. He says: 
"Colds cause appendicitis if the bowels 
are not kept active. Appendicitis is the 
most grave and serious of all acute in- 
testinal disorders. Keep your bowels 
active by taking Cascarine. which I be- 
lieve to be the bo«t laxative. If your 
tongue is coated with re^ tips, and the 
bowels costive, j'ou are sick and should 
be careful. Take a teaspoonful of Cas- 
carine Ijefore you go to bed. and in the 
morning you will lie relieved and well. 
Cascarine is the best grippe preventive, 
and also a preventive of appendicitis. It 
is known to be the very !>e^t laxative, is 
recommended by all physicians and will 
positively cure any d).«order of the 
stomach, bowels and kidneys. Mothers 
should be careful and not give the chil- 
dren any laxative but Ca.scarine. It will 
not gripe any one. and is most pleasant 
to take. Buy a bottle today and you will 
be recommending it to your friend^? next 
week. At all druggists. i.O cents per 
bottle. If your druggist hasn't it. ask 
him to get it for you of his Jol)ber. The 
manufacturers of Cascarine will send to 
any atldress, absolutely free, a Oooklet

Do you live in terror of the monthly appearance of the menstrual period ? Does it mean to you 
days and weeks of languishing on a bed of sickness or laboriously drag^in^ yourself about ? Do sharp 
pains frequently catch you " low down " ? Headaches, backaches, and pains in the abdomen, arms 
and legs — all over the body in fact — make your existence a burden, do they not? It is remarkable 
that you wi!i continue to suffer these terrible ills day after day, when other women with exactly the 
same symptoms are being cured by 

Nature never intended you to suffer, and there is no necessity for It when there is such a remedy as 
Wine of Cardui near at hand. The record of this s;reat medicine shows that it has brought relief from 
those trying aches and pains, to over one million suffering women. The menstrual period has no 
terror for a healthy wotnan. if you suffer you are in ill health. Wine of Cardui is a natural remedy 
which makes menstruation painless. Try the remedy which cured Ella Caison and Mary Stevenson.

Opsnsd Fcr Season. 


Railroad Ellen Deub!Hls Asser- 
tion as to List Year's 

The annual reopening of the home- 
•eeker's' movement Westward is now 
underway, and with it there is much in- 
terest awakened among the people of 
the Northwest, as well as among all the 
railway lines th:it usually get the busi- 
ness of transporting the homeseekers. 
Some of the paper«s, those in Chicago 
particularly, have been making what 
the railroad men claim are extravagant 
reports concerning tiie volume of thi.s 
clas.T of travel, but taking this into con- 
sideration, there is reason to believe 
that with all the •■drumming" now go- 
ing on by the -itticials. the prospects are 
good for a movement into the North- 
wo.-t that will surpass that of a year 

.'ii his annual review of the conditions 
of tho Gnat Northern sy^tt m. President 
J. J. Hill made the stitcment that dur- 
ing the last fiscal year So.uiX) settlers 
took up thfir homes aUms that road. It 
te said that diligent in<iuiry has failed 
to verify his generous estimate; that in 
the first place it is difficult to tell witli 
any degree of accuracy Just how many 
«i-til -rs take up their homes along any 
one line, and on the other hand, there is 
exctlltnt uflicial judgment fur the State- 
ment that not over Sn.OOO people came 
into the Noithwest in the wh.jle colonist 
movement last year. However that 
may be, Mr. Hill'is and other linc^, in the 
Northwest have InauguiatcJ rcduce(i 
rates, and this fact has been instrumen- 
tal, no doubt, in bringing into the West 
a big class of travel which would not 
otherwise have come. While the rate is 
called low, railroad men say that it is 
not below that figure where the roads 
handle the busine-.=s with a loss. They 
secure in the 130 fare from Chicago west 
and the $17.50 per car for household 
goods, full return for the expense met in 
transporting that class of business. In 
addliton. they hope to derive much per- 
manent g<x)d in the way of revenue l>y 
the busine«c; created when theao settlers 
open up the unsettled country. 

Tht movement is said to have opened 

up well for the settson, fur while the 
head of the lakes district did not get 
cjuite so many as it was expected that it 
v.ould, there were many settlers who 
came into Northern Minne~ola, and it is 
believed that the land settled up will in 
time become tributary in trade to Du- 
iuth. It is estimated that about loOi. 
people have already passed through the 
Twin Cities over the three coast lines 
for the West. These people' came from 
Iowa, Illinois and points farther East, 
the majority of them going through to 
\V'a.shington, Oregon and Idaho. The Soo 
road hai been cutting into the business 
this year to a large extent, and this is 
said to be due to the fact that liundrcds 
of Americans are .going North to take 
advantage of the inducements held oiU 
for ssitlers in the Canadian North \VOst.. 

While it is impossible at this early 
period in the reason to predict the ex- 
tent of the mc»vement with any degree 
of certainty, the agents of each com- 
pany are working quietly and as effec- 
tively as pos.-ible. It is natural that 
they should not de.==!re the rival roads to 
see their hands. The roads of the 
Northwest are widely known in Eastern 
railroad clrcle-3 for the able corps cf 
passenger and immigration agents that 
they employ, and even now the Great 
Northern and N( rthern Pacific roads 
have their agents energetically working 
the middle and Eastern states. The 
imiaha road is not behind in utTering in- 
ducements to settlers to come up into 
Northern Wisconsin. There is no doubt 
but that the cheap rates offered by the 
Southwestern roads, resulting in a heavy 
homeseekers' movement toward Okla- 
homa, have hurt the coast line.-?, yet it is 
Conceded that the Northwest is being 
pretty well adveriised. 

A prominent local railroad offlcial, 
w ho has c. faculty of noticing things per- 
taining to the advantage-.^ for settlers 
here as well as elsewhere in the North- 
west, said the othor day that the first 
thing that impressed him about Duluth 
and vicinity v>as that there were no 
little farmers here. There Is no reason. 
saitl he, why market garclenlncr enougli 
could not be done rigiit in this vicinity 
to c-:upply the demands of the city, and 
thus keep at home a large part of the 
money that goes out of the city for gar- 
den stuff that is oftentime.«! inferior to 
the quality that could be raised lioio. 
Ho says that he found, on investigation, 
that the absence of small farms was due 
to the fact that a large- part of the out- 
lying tracts are owned by land com- 
paniec?, and that it is difficult to find 
farmers who l^elieve it profitable to at- 
tempt on land that is said to 'i>e 
worth ?"0f>0 an a.:'re. The sam.e condi- 
tion of affairs, he says, exists in West 
Superior, and until the land is owned 
more by Individuals, he does not look 
fn:- a development of the nearby ianl 

Danger of Colds and La Grippt. 

The greater-t danger from colds and la 
grippe is their resulting in pneumonia. 
If reasonable care is used, however, and 
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy taken, all 
danger will be avoided. Among the tens 
of thousands who tiave used this remedy 
for these diseases we have yet to learn 
of a single case having residted in pneu- 
monia, which shows conclusively that it 
is a certain preventive of that dangerous 
m.alady. It will cure a cold or an at- 
tack of la grippe in less time than any 
other treatment. It is pleasant and safe 
to take. For sale at Boyce's Drug store. 


Why Couiicii Fr«msd Authority to 
Gd Firo Hail Plan as H Did. 

East End residents desiring a new fire 
hall at the corner of Fourteenth avenue 
cast and Second street are wondering 
wliat the council had in view in adopt- 
ing a resolution Monday giving the 
lM)ard cf fire commissioners authority to 
have plans and .specifications for tiie 
new hall prepared, providing it can bs 
done without expense to the city. 

On its face, many thought that the 
resolutijn was a cold way of turning 
the fire hall proposition down, but that 
was far from its purpose. Alderman 
Wing, as chairman of the fire depart- 
ment committee, says that the new hall 
will have to be built out of taxes yet to 
be levied. Under the new charter no 
contracts can be made without money 
in ttie treasury to pay for them, and 
there was no money for this purpose. 

The comndttee at first thought that it 
would have to report against the new 
fire hall on this account, but several of 
th)se Interested notified them that cer- 
tain arclaitects had agreed to furnish 
plans and .specifications free, taking 
chances on getting the work and its 
superintendenre. It was with this un- 
derstanding that the council adopted the 


Friday evening the Apollo cluB, of 
Minneapolis, will give a concert at the 

First Methodist church in the Star Lec- 
ture course. The chorus numbers sixty 
voices and is under tiie direction of 
Claude Madden. It has been together 
for six seasons and is the finest male 
chorus in the Northwest. The program 
which will be rendered will embrace 
some of the very finest choruses that 
have been written, as well as much 
lighter music. Miss Clara Williams, a 
popular soparo of Minneapolis, will 
also be with the club. 

Frederick Vvarde will appear at the 
Lyceum Friday and Saturday evenings 
in "The Duke s Jester." The play was 
written especially for Mr. Warde and 
the Brunc company and was originally 
produced at Seattle the latter part of 
last season. The plot deals with tlie 
life of a court jester and is full of such 
instances and amusing situations as 
might occur in the daily life of a fool.

The summary of the meteorological 
chart of the great lakes fo: the season of 
1900, which has lust been Issued by the 
weather bureau, contains some verj^ Inter-

detailed list of the casualties on the lakes 
during tho season, which shows that S9 
lives were lost from various cau»es, thit 
las vessels were more or less damaged, 
and that the total ir.onev losses from all 
kinds of casualties footed up J74»,675, of 
which ?194,500 was from causes other than

Decision of Importance Ren- 
dered By Jut^e Smith 
at Cincinnati. 

Chicago, Feb. 20.— A special to the 
Times-Herald from Cincinnati says: 
Judge Rufus B. Smith, of the superior 
court, has rendered a, decision that is 
regarded as important, in its bearing on 
trusts. Elias Blick d Sons, Kentucky 
distillers, shut up their manujactory 
under a contract with the whisky trust 
by which the latt. r agreed to furnish 
Block & Sons all their goofl and {^^y 
them $1000 a month in addition. The 
trust became in de: lult for $10,000 u.i- 
der this ftmtract an i fiuit was brought 
to recover The whisky trust nl'-a a 
demurrer, alleging that the contract 
was illegal. The demun-r is over- 
ruled the court holding that when a 
contract, apparently illegal, is only an 
incident to a large contract, which is 
legal, then the first contract will stand 
as a circumstance.

While Sydney Smith tells us that if 
we want to improve our understand- 
ing, drink coffee." And thus we find 
Its praises sung by poets, wits and men 
oi note from the period of its first dis- 
covery, which seemed to be a happy 
accident. The delicious. aromaU? 
na\or. once tasted, recommended it im- 
mediately to popular favor, which has 
m nowise diminished 


History informs us that the first cof- 
fee house was opened in Constanti- 
nople in loo4 and became so popular as 
to have many rivals and so excite the 
condemnation of the priests, on account 
of the counter attraction which imer- 
fered with religious observances, and to 
cause the "ungodly coffee divans" to b"> 
closed by the mufti for a time. But 
they, finally proving that coffee did not 
corne under the head of coal, which is 
forbidden the pious Mussulman's use 
by the Koran, the ban was removed, 
ihe first London coffee house was 
opened about 1652, and in Queen Anne's 
time there were 3000 in existence Thes^ 
partook much of the nature of clubs, 
and were selected according to individ- 
ual preference or choice of kindred 
spirits; but at all or any of them were 
to be found men of wit and learning, 
science and letters. 

The first "coffee house" opened in 
New York city was in 18.32. and was 
known as Brown's, the noted resta i- 
rateur. This was done on the advire 
of physicians, who urged all to refrain 
from the use of alcoholic beverages ai.d 
drink only "pure coffee," in order to 
avoid an attack of cholera epidemic at 
that time. 


"The value of coffee, as a beverage, 
IS greatly dependent on the care and 
.skill manifested in its preparation " 
This is essentially true both in regard 
to economy and health. 

In the roasting process the coffee 
berry is subject to a temperature of 200 
degrees Cent., or even more. During 
this process the berries assume the 
dark brown color; the sugar in the 
berry being converted into caromel and 
a volatile, ethereal oil developed, which 
gives the coffee its delicate aroma. To 
obtain the finest fiavor from the berry, 
the coffee should be used as soon as 
possible after roasting, owing to the 
volatile nature of the oil, which is 
rapidly dispelled, and the aroma lost 
with long keeping. It Is no trick of 
the imagination that causes us to com- 
pare unfavorably the average cup of 
toffee of today with the delicious bever- 
age our grandmother used to make, 
who roasted her own berries. 

Aside from the aronia that makes the 
coffee so inviting, it contains many 
other properties to recommend it as a 
valuable adjunct to our diet list, and it 
is only the intemperate use that makes 
it harmful, except in certain individual 
cases and physical conditions. 


The stimulating properties contained 
in coffee are only sufTicient to restore 
an exhausted system without possess- 
ing the intoxicating effect of wines and 
liquors. Even so long ago as the seven- 
teenth century, the use of coffee was 
found to promote greater sobrioty 
among all nations and classes. The 
sulistitutlon of the breakfast cup of cof- 
fee for the morning draft of ale, beer or 
wine, was found a most beneficial 
change, stimulating both brahi and 
muscle to a healthy degree for the busi- 
ness of the day; whereas, on the other 
hand, the less "civil drinks" had quite 
the opposite effects. In labor districts 
one of the most potent factors in op- 
posing "ale houses" are the "coffee 
houses." And If one wishes to try the 
effect of civilization on a tramp, give 
him a generous cup of fragrant hot cof- 
fee. It will bring out any latent chiv- 
alry that may He dormant 'neath the 
livery of the social outcast. 


Coffee has a decidedly stimulating ef- 
fect on the heart, and when taken in ex- 
cess or the infusion is too strong is apt 
to disturb the action of this organ to 
an uncomfortable degree, and the ner- 
vous system Is affected to greater or 
less extent. 

Dyspeptic persons should he careful 
coffee drinkers, as its use frequently 
disturbs the digestion, giving rise to 
heartburn, palidtation and various toxic 
symptoms, causing great discomfort 
and often anxiety to the sufferer. But 
these disturbances generally arise, as 
we have said, from excessive and 
strong infusions. One frequent cause of 
Its disagreeing with dyspeptics is their 
indulging in it after a hearty meal. 
Those who do not wish to deprive them- 
selves of their after-dinner coffee 
sould Indulge in the smallest quantity, 
clear, freshly made and under no cir- 
cumstances mixed with cream or milk. 
Remember that whf^n coffee is taken 
mixed with milk and sugar it contains 
a very considerable amount of nutrients 
and is rather a highly sustaining food. 
In this form we have the cafe au lait, 
which constitutes, with the adition of 
a roll, the average breakfast in the 
French household. The cafe nolr of 
France, which is usually more of a de- 
coction than infusion, should be avoided 
by dyspeptics. 


Coffee is often utilized in disease on 
account of the valuable properties 
which it possesses, both in its stimu- 
lating and sustaining qualities. 


The raw, unroasted berry will keep 
for a long time in a dry place, and age 
improves it. After roasting, it should 
be kept in air tight jars. Those who 
buy their coffee ground should observe 
this rule closelv. as coffee is a great 
absorbent and not only loses Its aroma 
if left exposed, but will be permeated by 
other flavors less agreeable. For this 
reason tin canisters are objected to, 
owing to the effect of the metal on 

Most lovers of good coffee agree that 
it never should be made in m*tal coffee 
pots; only porcelain or earthenware will 
produce the beverage in perfection. 

The methods of making it vary al- 
most as much as do the brands. 

Coffee must not boil, as the violent 
ebulution dissipates the aroma. Do 
not allow it to go beyond a gentle sim- 
mering point. 

A good rule as to the proportions Is giv- 
en bv a notf^d authority on coff*'e-maklng, 
and is as follows: One ounce of coffee to a 
pint of water makes poor coffee; one and

Said to Have Oot Lots of 
Money From 

Sprinligeld, 111., Feb. 20.— Miss Kabu- 
rick. whose arrest on a charge of swindl- 
ing by means of a matrimonial scheme 
was told the other day. has furnished 
a bond for her appearance to answer to 
the United States grand jury and was re- 
leased. The bond was signed by her broth- 
er, Andrew Kaburick, and her attorney. 
It is possible other arrests may follow, as 
Miss Kaburick intimates that her opera- 
tions were prompted by some of her girl 
friends at Bloomington. She declared tnat 
she was suffering largely for the sins of 

Miss Kaburick was arrested on a federal 
warrant, and United States commissioner 
Hurr bound her over in ihe sum of JJiJO. 
She was taken to Bloomington, where 
she gave bond, Miss Kaburick s plan has 
been to secure the names of male persons 
from matrimonial agencies and then to en- 
ter int'> correspondence with them. 

An exchange of photographs generally 
followed, concluding with marriage con- 
tracts. At about this point she intimated 
to her victims tliat she was in need of 
money to purchase a wedding trousseau 
and suggested the advance of sums rang- 
ing Uom $">*> to $Hx). From the number of 
complaints tiled with the pi>stal aiiihori- 
tles it is evident that Miss Kaburick 
found a ready response from a great 
number of her victims. One of her victims 
complained of being swindled just about 
the time the postmaster at Bloomington 
received many inquiries regarding [Ter. A 
secret service man collected the evidence 
which caused her arrest. Her an-est 
cau.sed a big sensation. 

Miss Kaburick formerly lived in C'ar- 
linville and later worked at the Windsor 
hotel, in Bloomington. l>efore the big tire 
there. While there Miss Kaburick Tre- 
quentlv received various sums of money, 
but explained the matter by saying that 
the muiiey came from her parents. During 
last September she left the hotel and be- 
came an art pupil at St. Joseph's acad- 

She was an apt pupil and her work has 
shown evidence of ability. In addition to 
her art Miss Kaburick spent considerable 
time in needle work, which sold aC- fancy 

At the preliminary hearing Miss Kabu- 
rick confessed having sent letters to male 
persons in various parts of the countiy, 
but refused to make a statement concern- 
ing the amount of money she had received. 
Her frank manner and innocent apL>ear- 
ance even had its effect upon the stern 
Unite.i Slates attorney. The indications 
are that the young woman will escape 
with a very light santence. 

After being arrested Miss Kaburick 
went to Bloomington postolflce. in com- 
pany with Ihe deputy marshal, and there 
received a registered letter from one of 
her vlciims. 

The 1( tter contained a money order for 
$.".4. and from the tenor of the communica- 
tion, which was shown to the de))uty 
marshal. It was eonchuUd that the amount 
had been forwiirded to her to defray her 
expenses to Oklahoma, where the victim 
intended to make her his wife. Among the 
otlier victims are two persons who reside 
in Ohio. Both of these have made com- 

Miss Kaburick is an exceedingly pretty 
erlrl of Ul years. She is i>f small stature, 
has jet blnek hair and eyes and Innocent 
di-meanor and dresses in the latest fash- 
ion. IVrs(3ns who have known her at 
Bloomington declare tliat her moral char- 
acter is good. Her friends believe that .she 
has no tonception of the gravity of llie 
iTime she has committed.

MaoArthur Says He Was Mali-

After Hearing. 

Washington. Feb. 20. —The secretar>' of 
war has replied to the senate resolution 
of Feb. ">. asking for the facts In the case 

of George T. Rice, editor of the Daily 
Bulletin of Manilla, who was recently 
dt'iiorted to the United States by the 
order of tien. MacArthur. The .secretary's 
h.'tler consists simj>ly of copies of two tel- 
egrams which passed between Adjt. Gen. 
Corbin and Gen. MacArthur on the sub- 
ject. On Feb. 7 Gen. Corbin cabled Gen. 
MacArthur as follows: 

"In reply to rtrsolutlon of the senate, 
the se<-retary of war desires you cable 
whether one Rice has been deported, by 
what authority and for what offense.'* 

(ien. MacArttuir replied on Fe-b. !< as fol- 
lows: "Editor deported San Francisco, 
Jan. 28. Offense malicious publication of 
false charges affecting integrity of ad- 
ministration of e>tlice captain of the port, 
in which formerly employed. This with 
full knowledge of their faisiiy. Maltey re- 
ceived exhaustive investigation in which 
Klce Wiis heard in own defense. He was 
informed he must give bond not to re- 
publish or leave islands, as his actijons 
were creating strife and were monai'e 
military situation. He maintained atti- 
tude of defiance and was necessarily sent 
home. Full report was forwarded wiiJi all 
papers Feb. 1." 

The secretary of war said that this cor- 
respondence was the only Information he 
had on the subject of the resolutioi;i and 
he added that the mail report n'terred 
to by Gen. MacArthur will be subse- 
quently transmitted to the senate, 


Man Who Confessed to Robson's 
Murder Is Fred Muck. 

Sioux City, Iowa, Feb. 20.— Frank H. 
Peyton, brought here on his confession 
to the murder of John E. Robson in 1S99. 
which he later repudiated, was taken 

back to St. Louis to face ten charges of 
larceny and burglary, 'which he sought 
t.i escape by his confession. The haijeaa 
corpus proceedings which he brought 
were dismissed, and at noon yesterday 
ho started, ironed hand and foot, in 
charge of a police sergeant of St. Louis. 
When notified to prepare to leave the 
^ail, he refused to dress, and w as carried 
from his cell and forcibly dressed by the 
officers. He became frantic, and talked 
of using a gun. He has returned to the 
use of dope, and at the time of his arrest 
was crazy with cocaine. 

The revelation was made that Pey- 
ton's real name is Fred Muck. A brother 
turned up here who had not seen him 
for fourteen years who recognized him 
at once. At one time Peyton worked 
here as a plumber, which accounts for 
the accuracy with which he described 
lociiilties here when he made his bogus 
confession. His parents live in Worth- 
ington, Minn., which was his boyhood

Washington, Feb. 20. — In a report to 
the state department United States 
Consul Hill, at Amsterdam, has en- 
closed a letter from the Koloniale bank 
of that city, asking for information 
relative to the price and terms of the 
best American sugar machinery and 
also American tramway engines and 
appurtenances in behalf of the bank's 
agent at Soerabaya. Java. The city of 
Soerabaya has a population of 142.980 
and is two days by rail from Batavia. 
In speaking of the means of transport- 
ation the consul says the cheapest way 
of shipping f-om the United States to 
the former city is by way of Liverpool 
or London, thence direct to Batavia. 
The consul says that American manu- 
facturers have taken advantage of this 
opportune time to gain a further foot- 
hold In the Java importing business. 
Last year the exports from Java to the 
United States amounted to nearly $27.- 
000.000. mainly sugar. Consul Hill notes 
that two government officials of that 
country recently left there to make an 
inspection of the works of an American 
firm which was awarded the contract 
for furnishing materials for the water 
supply of SoeraI)aya. Duties on iron and 
steel products are levied In the Dutch 
East Indies at 10 per cent ad valorem, 
instead of r> per cent, as per the traiit 
for the Netherlands. 


Dselsion Handed Down In a Duluth 

St. Paul, Feb. 20.— The supreme court 
has handed down the following decision: 
Jacob J. Esch and Peter J. Esch, respon- 
dents, vs. William C. White, appellant. 

Syllal us: First— An orde^r of the district 
court upon a legel question where It has 
Jurlv^dictlon of the person and the subject 
malte*r involved Is conclusive, unless set 
aside upon review by 'the apptMlat'e court; 
if such order is not re\iewed. but acqui- 
esced In by the parties. It is to be treated 
as the law of that case, and final. 

Second— Where llie district court holds 
that an undertaking on appeal from the 
appomtmcnt of a receiver is not sufficleit, 
and requires another of different form to 
discharge cC'ntempt of a receiver is not 
discharge contempt proceedings against 
the appellant, such new undertaking is 
a suttident consldeiatlon for a oromise to 
indemnify the sureties to whom such 
promise is m.ade. 

Third— Where upon foreclosure of a 
mortgage a receiver has been appointed to 
take charge of the properly, whether the 
mortgagor or owner of the property is 
entitled to the ri nts and profits, under 
thf> rule in Marchail et al vs. Cady. 75 
Minn.. 241. cannjt be determined in a col^ 
lateral action where all the parties m- 
terested are not before the court, and 
there has been no accounting or setli"^- 
ment with such receiver, as in this ease. 

Fourth— No new facts are set forth in 
the amended answer that requires any 
modification or change In the rule laid 
down on the former appeal of this ca^e. 
Esch vs. White. 76 Minn.. 220. 

Fifth— Held, upon the allegation In the 
amended answer that states that plaintiff 
was not the real party In interest, that 
such .averment Is a conclusion of law and 
insufficient, as It sets forth no farts show- 
ing that such plaintiff Is not interested in 
the result of the action.

Society Actress Says Stage People 
Are Not In Her Class. 

New York, Feb. 20.— The statement 
made by Mrs. Constance Drexel Biddie, 
the society woman, who has begun her 
career as a vaudeville actress at a 
Philadelphia theater, that there are no 
ladies or gentlemen on the v^iag?, has 
aioused a storm of protest. Mrs. Ulddle 

"I did not intend to imply there were 
no exeeptiims, but the very large- ma- 
jority (jf those you come in contact with 
are not so by birth or breedin.g. 

"This class has never had the advant- 
age of a.s-.sociaiion with the Ijest peoijle; 
the maj.irity has sprung from a stratum 
in life where the custom.s. manners and 
deportment of people of position are i:n- 
known. It is their misfortune, perhaps 
may not be their fault." 

Mrs. Biddie will marry Fernando 
Yznaga as soon as her husband secures 
a divorce he is now seeking.

We do not believe Mercury and Potash ever made a complete and radical cure 
of Contagious Blood Poison, and there are thousands of despondent, half sick, 
miserable mercurial wrecks in this country who have learned from bitter experience 
that what we say is true. These dangerous drugs drive from the skir the sores 
and eruptions, and bottle up the disease in the system, but the slumbering poison 
breaks out again just so sure as you leave off the medicine, while to continue leads 
to a most horrible form of Rheumatism, destruction of the tissues and bones, 
chronic running sores on the legs and other parts of the body, inflammalion of the 
membranes of the stomach and brain, and at last paralysis and insanity. 

Mercury and Potash are powerless to destroy the peculiar virus of Contagious 
Blood Poison, and their use only deepens and intensifies the disease. Though 
there may be no external signs, the hacking cough, the palpitating heart and 
sunken eye show that the dread disease has centered upon some vital organ. 
This horrible virus can be antidoted and entirely destroyed, and the blood made 
as healthy and pure as ever, and S. S. S. does it. We have known cases where 
the breast and back were covered with large eating sores and the soft bones of the mouth, throat and nose eaten 
entirely away, cured sound and well. S. S. S. cures Contagious Blood Poison in every stage, no matter how long you 

have had it or how desperate the case, it 
will drive out every atom of the poison 
and repair the damage done to the con- 
stitution by the powerful mineral reme- 
dies. S. S. S. numbers its friends by the 
thousands in all parts of the country. 
Many who had struggled for years with 
this monster disease, tortured in mind 
and body, have, after a course of S. S. S^ 
taken their places in the ranks, and are 
successfully fighting the battles of life. 
S. S. S. is the only guaranteed purely 
vegetable blood purifier known, and an 
infallible and safe cure for this vile dis- 
ease. Instead of poisoning the system, 
it builds up and invigorates the general health while eliminating the d(;structive virus from the blood. Remember that 
S. S. S. is' the only vegetable blood purifier on the market, and if you ai'e persuaded to buy something else, whether a 
liquid, powder or pill, you are taking Potash and Mercury, for these poisonous 
drugs are. the basis of every prescription and advertised cure for Contagious 
Blood Poison, except S. S. S. Our book on this disease should be read by 
every sufferer; it describes fully the symptoms and different stages of the 
disease, contains complete instructions for self-treatment at home, and much 
other information that every one should have. We will mail a copy free on 
application. Why ruin the system with minerals when Contagious Blood 
Poison can be so completely and permanently driven out by a purely veg.etable 

and thoroui^hly tested remedy like S. S. S. ? You can't afford to expe riment , . , 

when your health is at stake. Don't get bottled up— take S. S. S. In case you need advice or other information, write 
our Dhvsicians and tell them all about your case. What you say to us is held in strictest confidence, so don't hesitate to 
write fully and freely. THE SWIFT SPECIFIC COMPANY, ATLANTA. GA. 


Newark, N, J., November, 1900. 

"I struggled for four years with a most desperate 
ease of Contagious Blood Poison ; I took Mercury, with 
Iodide Potash almost continually from the time I 
contracted the disease, but instead of improving I was 
continually growing weaker all the time, and sores 
broke out on my body in such numbers and were 
so severe and offensive that the doctor while treating 
me used rubber gloves. Finally he told me to get 
another doctor; that he could do nothing more for me. 
This was the latter part of last summer. I then wrote for 
your Home Treatment Book on Blood Poison and began 
B. 8. 3. I hAFe been taking it according to directions, 
and it is wittf great pleasure I have to report a perfect 
cure. There |b not a mark on me, and I now weigh 136 
pounds; my usual weight was 110. A number of my 
friends are taking S. S. 8. now, and I sincerely hope it 
will do them as much good as it did me. You can pub- 
lish my letter if you wish, and I hope the people who 
read it will db as f did. Yours truly,

Dear Sirs : — I didn't find out that I t ad con- 
tracted Contagious Blood Poison until it had 
made considerable headway, ond forlunately 
for me the friend that I first consulted aad had 
some experience with the disease, and advised 
mo to take S. 8. S., so I didn't fool with any 
doctors, but began at once the use of your 
medicine, taking it as directed. My friond told 
me to stick to it, and that was what I did and 
got along splendidly from the very first, and 
my recovery was rapid. I took only atout one 
dozen bottles, and am now as well us ever. 
When I began S. S. 8. my face was so full of 
sores and eruptions that I oould not shikve, and 
now there is not a blotch or pimple on my 
body. There is nothing In the world that can 
beat 8. 8. S. for blood poison, and 1 always 
recommend it for such cases. A friend of mino 
is taking it now, and is getting on nicely. 
Yours truly,

Miss Kaburick was arrested on a federal 
warrant, and United States commissioner

She was taken to iiloomington. wlierc 
she gave bond. Miss Kaburick s plan has 
be» n to secure the names of male persons 
from matrimonial agencies and then to en- 
ter into correspondence with them. 

An exchange of photographs generally 
followed, cottcluding with marriage con- 
tracts. At about this point she inlimatcd 
to her victims that she was in need of 
money to i)ureha.s« a wedding trousseau 
and suggested the advance of sums rang-

complaints tiled with the postal authori- 
ties it is evident that Miss Kaburick 
fr»und a ready response from a great 
number of her victims. One of her victims 
complained of being swindled just about 
the time the postmaster at Bloomington 
received many inquiries regarding ITer. A 
secret service man collected the evidence 
whic-h caused her arrest. Her ara-est 
caused a big sensation. 

Miss Kaburick formerly lived in Car- 
linville and later worked at the Windsor 
hotel, in Hlooniington, before the big tire 
there. While there Miss Kaburick Tre- 
(juentiv received various sums of money, 
but explained the matter by .saying that 
the monev came from her jiarents. During 
last September she left the hotel and be- 
came an art pupil at St. Jo.seph's acad- 

She was an apt pupil and her work has 
shown evidence of ability. In addition lo 
her art Miss Kai)urick s|)enl considerable 
time in needle work, which sold af- fancy 

At the preliminary hearing Miss Kabu- 
rick < onftssed having sent letters t<» male 
persons in various parts of the countiy, 
Init refused to make a statement concern- 
ing the amount of money she had received. 
Her frank manner and innocent apj.H'ar- 
ani-e even had its effect uoon the stt-rn 
Unite,! Slates attorney. The indications 
are that the young woman will escape

MaoArihur Says He Was Mali- 
cious and Sent Homo 
After Hearing. 

Washington, Feb. 20.— The secretary of 
war has replied to the seiuite resolution 
of Feb. r., asking for the facts in the case 

of (Jeorge T. Riie, editor of the Daily 
Ibillelin of Manilla, who was recently 
deiiorted to the United States l.y the 
order of (Jell. .MacArtliur. The secretary's 
letter consists simply of copies of two tel- 
egrams whicii iiassed between Adjt. iJen. 
• 'orbin and (Jen. MacArthur on the sub- 
ject. On l-'eb. 7 tJen. Corbin cabled Gen. 
MacArthur as follows: 

"In reply to resolution of the senate, 
the seiTeiary of war desires you cable 
wheilicr one Rice lias been de))orled, by 
what authority and for what offense.'* 

Oen. MacArthur replied on Feb. >i as fol- 
lows: "Editor dejiorted San Francisco, 
Jan. 28. Otl'ense mali( ious publication of 
false charges affecting integrit>- of ad- 
jninistration I'f idficc captain of the port,

ceived exhaustive investigation in which 
Rii-o Wits heard in own di-t'ense. He was 
informed he must give bi'nd not to re- 
l)iiblish or leave islands, as his acliiuis 
were creating strife and were menace 
military situation. He maintained atti- 
tude of detianco and was neces.^arily sent 
home. Full report was forwarded wi.^li all 
pai>ers Feb. 1." 

The secretary of war said that this cor- 
respondence was the only Information he 
iiad on the subject of the residutioi^ and 
lie added that the mail report relerrcd 
to by Gen. MacArthur will be sub^e- 
tiuently transmitted to the senate. 


Foreign Agents Want lo 

Known Prices and Terms 

of Machinery. 

Washington, Feb. 20.— In a report to 
the state department United States 
Consul Hill, at Amsterdam, has en- 
closed a letter from the Koloniale hank 

of that city, asking for Information 
relative to the price and terms of the 
best American sugar machinery and 
also American tramway engines and 
appurtenances in behalf of the bank'.s 
agent at Soerabaya, Java. The city of 
Soerabaya has a population of 142.980 
and is two days by rail from Hatavia. 
In speaking of the means of transport- 
ation the consul says the cheapest way 
of .^hipping f-om the United States to 
the fortTler city is by way of Liverpool 
or London, thence direct to Batavia. 
The consul says that American manu- 
facturers have taken advantage of this 
opportune time to gain a further foot- 
hold in the Java importing business. 
Last year the exports from Java t'^ the 
United States amounted to nearly $27,- 
000.0*j0. mainly sugar. Consul Hill notes 
that two government officials of that 
country recently left there to make an 
inspection of the works of an American 
flrni which was awarded the contract 
for furnishing materials for the water 
supply of Soerabaya. Duties o:a iron and 
steel products are levied in the Dutch 
East Indies at 10 per cent ad valorem, 
instead of 5 per cent, as per the traiit 
for the Netherlands. 


Man Who Conftssed to Robson^s 
Murder Is Frtd Muck. 

Sioux City, Iowa, Feb. 20.— Frank H. 
Peyton, brought here on his confession 
to the murder of John E. Robson in 1S99, 
which he later repudiate<3, was taken 

back to St. Louis to face ten charges of 
larceny and burglary, 'which he sought 
to escape by his confe.?sion. The haijeas 
corpus proceedings which he brought 
were dismissed, and at noon yesterday 
he started, ironed hand and foot, in 
charge of a police sergeant of St. Louis. 
When notified to prepare to leave the 
.^lil, he refused to dress, and was carried 
from his cell and forcibly dressed by the 
ofl'icers. He became frantic, and talked 
of using a gun. He has returned to the 
us3 of dope, and at the time of his arrest 
WIS crazy with cocaine. 

The revelation was made that Pey- 
ton's real naine is Fred Muck. A brother 
turned up here who had not seen him 
for fourteen years who recognized him 
at once. At one time Peyton worked 
here as a plumber, which accounts for 
the accuracy with which he dcscrib>?d 
localities here when he made his bogus 
corfession. His parents live in Worth- 
ington, Minn., which was his boyhood

Decision Handed Down In a Dululh 

St. Paul, Feb. 20.— The supreme court 
has handed down the following decision: 
Jacob J. Esch and Peter J. Esch, respon- 
dents, vs. William C. White, appellant. 

Syllal us: First— .\n order of the district 
court upon a iegel question where It has 
jurl'-'dictlon of the j.erson and the subject 
matter iiivoi\ed is con(dusive, unless set 
aside upon review by 'the appe'Uate court; 
if such order is tiot reviewed, but acqui- 
esced in by the parties, it is to be treatc-d 
as the law of that case, and tlnal. 

Second— Where the district court holds 
that an undertaking on appeal from tie 
appointment of a receiver is not suttlcifit, 
and re<julres another of different form to 
discharge co'o tempt of a receiver is not 
discharge contempt proceedings against 
the appellant, such new undertaking is 
a sufticient consideiation for a promise lo 
indemnify the sureties to whom sucli is made. 

Thij-d— Where upon foreclosure of a 
mortgage a receiver has l)e*n appointed to 
take charge of the properly, whether the 
mortgai;or or owner of the propeitv is 
entitled to the r.nts and profits, under 
the. role in Mar .b.-iil et al vs. <'ady, 75 
Minn., 241. cannit be determinetl in a c.^1^ 
lateral action wh^ro all the jiarties in- 
terested aret not before the court, and 
there has been no accoimting or setti»- 
men; with such rec«lver, as in tliis c;'s?. 

Fourth— No new facts are set forth in 
the ameiidetl answer that requires any 
mollification or change in the rule laid 
down on the former .-ippeal of this ca^e, 
Esch vs. AVhite, 70 Minn.. 22it. 

Fifth— Held, upon the allegation in the 
amended answer that states that plaintiff 
was not the real p.irty in interest, 
such averment is a conclusion of law and 
insufllcient. as It sets forth no facts show- 
ing that such I'laintiff is not interested in 
the result of tbi> action.

Socisty Actress Says Stags Paopie

Nenv York, Feb. 2u. -The i^tatement 
made by Mrs. Constance Drexel Biddle, 
the society woman, who has begun her 
career as a vaudeville actress at a 
Philadelphia theater, that there are no 
ladies or senilemen on the vnas". has 
aiuused a storm of protest. Mrs. Uiddle 

"I did not intend to imply there were 
no exceptiiius, but the very large- ma- 
jority of those J ou come in contact w Jlh 
are not so liy birth or breedin.g. 

"This clas.s has never had the advant- 
age of as-.scciaiion with the best pco^jle; 
the majority has sjirung from a .-'Iratum 
in life where the custom.s, manners and 
deportment of people of position are u;i- 
known. It is their misfortune, perhaps 
niav not be their fault." 

Mrs. r.iddle will marry Fernando 
Yznaga as soon a-.s her husband so:-ures 
a divorce he is now seeking.

We do not believe Mercury and Potash ever made a complete and radical cure 
of Contagious Blood Poison, and there are thousands of despondent, half sick, 
miserable mercurial wrecks in this country who have learned from bitter experience 
that what we say is true. These dangerous drugs drive from the skin the sores 
and eruptions, and bottle up the disease in the system, but the slumbering poison 
breaks out again just so sure as you leave off the medicine, while to coniinue leads 
to a most horrible form of Rheumatism, destruction of the tissues iind bones, 
chronic running sores on the legs and other parts of the body, inflammation of the 
membranes of the stomach and brain, and at last paralysis and insanity. ^ 

Mercury and Potash are powerless to destroy the peculiar virus of ("ontagious 
Blood Poison, and their use only deepens and intensifies the disease. Though 
there may be no external signs, the hacking cough, the palpitating heart and 
sunken eye show that the dread disease has centered upon some vital organ. 
This horrible virus can be antidoted and entirely destroyed, and the blood made 
as healthy and pure as ever, and S. S. S. does it. We have known cases where 
the breast and back were covered with large eating sores and the soft bones of the mouth, throat and nose eaten 
entirely away, cured sound and well. S. S. S. cures Contagious Blood Poison in every stage, no matter how long you 

have had it or how desperate the case, it 
will drive out every atom of the poison 
and repair the damage done to the con- 
stitution by the powerful mineral reme- 
dies. S. S. S. numbers its friends by the 
thousands in all parts of the country. 
Many who had struggled for years with 
this monster disease, tortured in mind 
and body, have, after a course of S. S. S., 
taken their places in the ranks, and are 
successfully fighting the battles of life. 
S. S. S. is the only guaranteed purely 
vegetable blood purifier known, and an 
infallible and safe cure for this vile dis- 
ease. Instead of poisoning the system, 
it builds up and invigorates the general health while eliminating the destructive virus from the blood. Remember that 
S. S. S. is' the only vegetable blood purifier on the market, and if you are persuaded to buy something else, whether a 
liquid, powder or pill, you are taking Potash and Mercury, for these poisonous 
drugs are the basis of every prescription and advertised cure for Contagious 
Blood Poison, except S. S. S. Our book on this disease should be r.iad by 
every sufferer; it describes fully the symptoms and different stages of the 
disease, contains complete instructions for self-treatment at home, and much 
other information that every one should have. We will mail a copy free on 
application. Why ruin the system with minerals when Contagious Blood 
Poison can be so completely and permanently driven out by a purely ve:5etable 

and thoroughly tested remedy like S. S. S.? You can't afford to experiment , ., 

when your^ealth is at stake. Don't get bottled up— take S. S, S. In case you need advice or other information, write 
our physicians and tell them all about your case. What you say to us Is held in strictest confidence, so don t hesitate to 
writl fully and freely. THE SWIFT SPECIFIC COMPANY, ATLANTA, GA. 


Newark, N. J., November, 1900. 

•'I struggled for four years with a most desperate 
case of Contagious Blood Poison ; I took Mercury, with 
Iodide Potash almost continually Irom the time I 
contracted the disease, but instead of improving I was 
continually growing weaker all the time, and sores 
broko out on my body in such numbers and were 
so severe and offensive that the doctor while treating 
me used rubber gloves. Finally he told me to got 
another doctor; that he could do nothing more for me. 
This was the latter part of last summer. I then wrote for 
your Homo Treatment Book on Blood Poison and began 
8. S. S. I have been taking it according to directions, 
and it is witto' great pleasure I have to report a perfect 
cure. There IB not a mark on me, and I now weigh 136 
pounds; my usual weight was 110. A number of my 
friends are taking S. S. S. now, and I sincerely hope it 
will do them as much good as it did me. You can pub- 
lish my letter if you wish, and I hope tho people who 
read it will d6 as f did. Yours truly,

Dear Sirs:— I didn't find out that I .lad con- 
tracted Contagious Blood Poison until it had 
made considerable headway, and foitunately 
for me tho friend that I first consulted had had 
some experience with the disease, and advised 
me to take 8. S. S., bo I didn't fool \rith any 
doctors, but began at once tho use of your 
medicine, taking it as directed. My frend told 
me to stick to it, and that was what I did and 
got along splendidly from the very ilrst, and 
my recovery was rapid. I took only about one 
dozen bottles, and am now as well as over. 
When I began S. S. 8. my face was jo full of 
oores and eruptions that I could not si ave, and 
now there is not a blotch or pimplo on my 
body. There is nothing in the world that can 
beat S. S. S. for blood poison, and I always 
recommend it for such cases. A friend of miuo 
is taking it now, and is getting on nicely. 
Yours truly,

They Prove Bullish Factors 

Together With Light 

Northwest Receipts. 

Duluth Board of Trade, Feb. 20.— The 
Btrensth shown In the corn pit and the 
light Northwest receipts were the chief 
causes of the firm opening of the wheat 
market this morning. The cables were also 
a bullish factor, an advance in the Liver- 
pool market being reported. A Chicago 
dispatch repoi Ijd that soni': opeiaii rs 
were buying here and selling in New 
York. Clearances of wheat and flour ag- 
gregated 432,(Ki<J bus. At the seaboard yes- 
terday exporters bought 120,u00 bus of 
wheat. St. L.ouls coniiuues to report a 
good milling demand fur soft wheat. The 
wheat crop of Australia is estimated at 
9,1*37, <KiO bus, a yieid of S',* bus an acre. 
Keceipls at Dululh and Alinneapolis, 24*i 
cars, against na7 last week and a".>4 last 
year. <'hicago receipts. 3S cars, 1 of con- 
tract grade. Car receipts frr tomorrow at 
Cliiiago are estimated at Ao cars. 

Trading In futuri-s was fairly active on 
the Dulu;h lioard. May wht-at <»pened un- 
changed at ".jTbC. sold up to TtiVic at 11:2?, 
reaelfd to Ttj'gc at ll:5y, recovered to TUuc 
at 12:10 and eased off again to ~G%-\ic at 
12:15, rallied to 7»>%c at 12:41) and closed at 
(tiVio. an advance of TUVjC. Chicago ad- 
vanced -Tg-VjC and Minneapolis '/4-7ic. 

Cash sales were lo.WW bus at 2c ijiider 
May for wheat to arrive and 3c under 
May for wheat in store. 

Corn was a trifle stronger today closing 
at an advance in Uuluth of ^c and in Chi- 
cago at an advance of V4--*sc. Primary 
receiiits of corn were 'J3y,tjO<J bus. With 
reference to corn operations in Chicago 
gossijt from there today says: 

•'The Patten selling of long corn kept 
up yesterday with the llcpildatlon prob- 
ably" on about half the scale uf Monday. 
Patten declared on the lirst day of his big 
Belling he had let go about 3,230.(X)0 bus. 
His sales yesterday were possibly half 
that. It would mean the iifjuidatiou in 
two days of a line of about r..000.<tijo has 
Patten and Bartiett. The market did not 
yield yesterday as professionals had an- 
tic ipated it would. It took the additional 
Patten selling with surprising ease. .Coin 
closed no lowt-r than it did the day pre- 
vious, although there was not only the 
continued Patten litiuidatlon but selling 
out of some other large sized lines. It 
looks as if Phillips were anxious to try 
hla luck again In opposition to Patten 
as he bought largely. Phillip has been 
short of late with I'atten fnig and now 
Patten has turned sellen Phillips has 
taken the long side. It would be remarK- 
able if he could repeat the experience of 
last November. At that time I'hillips was 
short the market as long as Patten was 
long it and turned Inill just as soon as the 
big leader sold out. The corn price now 
Is some higher than It was ninety days 
agfi, but only 2c of 3c over. The contract 
stock is no larger now than then, only 
542.y»X» bus contracts in the public houses. 
The corn arriving is growing no belter 
than It did tlireo months ago only one 
Cvinfract yesterday out of j20 received. 
The outsider is .'is bullish now as he was 
In November. There is this Important 
difference, however. May is 90 days off, 
whereas last fall Phillips picked up a No- 
vember line in October and practically 
had the market cornered before anybody 
knew anything about It. Ther ewould be 
a three months' wait now on a May line 
with no one able to tell how mueh con- 
tract corn would turn up in the interim." 

Flax was weak again today. May closing 
2c off. Other coarse grains were un- 
changed in price.

Bullish Sentiment Responsible For 
Firmness of Prices. 

Chicago, Feb. 20.-Trade in corn early 
today was heavy, but so nicely balanced 
that fluctuations were narrow. BullLsh 
pit sentiment, more than anything else, 
seemed responsible for the firmness of 
prices. May opened \c higher at 40%.<b 
4lil)|C, touchod 40\^(t'aC, and ralliwi 10 4o*tC 
This wuB followed by a reaction to Mb\^'(i 
%c, whero at 11 o'clock the market ruled 
Strong. Cables w^jre steady. The bearish 
InHiitnce of cold weather was shown in 
more liberal country offerin^is. Receipts 
^•ere 276 cars, 2 of contract grade. 

Wheat ruled strong on ll.^ht Northwest 
receipts and in sympathy with corn. It 
wa.«« rtporte^^l that some operators w.?!0 
buying here and selling in New York. 
May wheat opone»i unchanged to '/ic 
higher at 75%if75v4c, euised off to 75%c and

■were 3S cars, one of <x<ntract grade, while

Chicago, Feb. 20.— The wheat market has 
been firm all day. showing an advance at 
one time of ^c and holding part of it. The 
helpful feature was a falling off in North- 
west receipts, which had only 343 car.-* 
against 504 last year. Norinwest markets, 
however, d'.d not reflect this condition. 
Cables were in(iijferent to our atlvance 
yesterday. There is some talk of lack of 
snow protection in Kansas and Nebraska. 
No c;\sh demand reported here, but 32 
loads at New York. The market has t>ecn 
speculatively dull but the absence of trade 
seems to have but little effect upon values 
and it is generally speaking more the ab- 
sence of offerings than any special de- 
mand that very readily advances prices 
in the face of bear condltl'ms. 

The corn market has been steady. Pat- 
ten has been the best seller. Phillips and 
his followers are on the buying side. The 
market has been firm moat of the day, but 
not as broad speculatively as has been the 
case. Cash business yesterday was about 
SOO.txK) bus. but is quiet toflay. New York 
j reports 25 loads taken for export. Consld- 
I ering the enormous quantity of corn with 
which the pit has been flooded the past 
two days, the market has shown a re- 
markable stubbornness and an absorbing 
character which Intimates very bullish 
feeling froin the outside. If this continu«s 

on a scale large enough, it can subordin- 
ate all local conditions. 

The oats market has been firm, follow- 
ing corn and wheat. PM business aside 
from a few operators, has not been im- 
portant. Shipping demand quiet. 

There has been a firm provision mar- 
ket, reflecting an advance of 10c in hugs, 
and smaller receipts. There were So.OlK) 
received today and 32,000 estimated for 
tomorrow. There has been a good demand 
for lard. Armour leading. There were 79,- 
000 hogs in the West against 94,000 a year 


Minnesota Transfer, St. Paul. — Barrett 
& Zimmerman report demand for jarni 
horses strong from near'.y all quarters. 
Trade opened this week with a hfiglit 
and satisfactory aspect for a large out- 
let. Wisconsin dealers and consumers are 
leading in the buying. Trade from North 
Dakota is .so far of a light volume. Heavy

St. Paul. Feb. 20.— A Rhinelander, Wis., 
special to the Dispatch says: Fire last 
night completely destroyed the business

The village contained two or three gen-

ance was carried, the place lielng without 
any sort of fire fighting apparatus. The 
work of rebuilding will commence at pnce.

Rally Occurred Later In Sugar 

and Steel and Wire 


New York, Feb. 20.— Trading was active 
at the opening of the stock market, but 
changes were narrow and botia up and 
down for ihe railyway stocks. Liquida- 
tion, however, was removed in some of 
the metal stocks, Tennessee Coal falling 
214 and Steel and Wire a point. Delaware 
& Hudson also gave way 2?4. After the 
first few minutes there was heavy selling 
of the granger stocks, which forced Rojk 
Island down 1^, St. I'aul a point and Bur- 
lington Vm. Northern pacillc also weak- 
ened and fell to 82.

lowe-st and tradln.^^ was dull at 11 o'clock. 

Tho market failed to hold on the ralley 
and liberal sales dt pressed the Reading's, 
Fries and some other prominent railroads 
to the lowest. Prices were slightly bet- 
ter at midday. Bonds were dull and 

Traders attempted to drive shorts to 
cover by bidding up the tractions from l-»i 
to 214. There were sharp advances in 
stocks of some small railways. Con.soli- 
dated Gas and Tin Plate rose 1%. There 
were a few rallies ' el.sewhere, that 
reached a point, but the response was very 
sluggish and did not hold. A break of 2*4 
in Smelting unsettled the market. Federal 
Steel falling to 46'i4 and Steel and Wire 
falling to 47, the lowest of the day. The 
greater gains in the tractions were lost 
and Delaware & Hudson fell back sharp- 
ly. The closing was (julte active and weak 
with a number of railway stocks at the 
lowest of the day.

New York to Baker— A large short in- 
terest cove*-e<l in Sugar Momlay. but ihe 
Slocks came out so early that the short 
line was put out again. There have re- 
cently be&n some deliveries which nrnke

The Bcstcn, Chicago Burlington & Quincy 
people have recently increased their hilld- 
itigs on learning that Morgan was buy- 
ing for control. This makos control b.v 
anv outsider less likely, except at much 
higher prices. Union Pacific is being sold 
by traders simply on the idea that it is 
not definitely protected by Insiders and is 
widely held and moves in sympathy with 
the eeneral market. The stock, however. 
Is largely oversold and therefore subject 
to sharp rallies. Tht- fact that the stock 
holds as well as i-t does under the circum- 
stances is evidence of the value the pub- 
lic Is putting upon It. 

McTntire and Marshall to Edwards, 
Wood & Co.— We find some discourage- 
ment among operators who have been 
trading on the bull side lately, over the 
recent disappointment in action of the 
market, and unl:ss some cxtronve develop- 
ments come to revive bullish sentiment, 
the large market Interests will let go tlvir 
holdings. We cannot, however, see any- 
thing to warrant anv material decline.

Receiver Blglit Wants Come- 
dian Barnabee to Put Up 
Stockholdere' Liability. 

Henry Clay Barnabee, the famous come- 
dian of the Bostonian Opera company, is 
to be asked to help cut the deficiency in 
the affairs of the Duluth Dry Goods com- 
pany, which quit business about live years 
ago in very much involved circumstances. 

J. H. l>ight, the receiver, this morning 
filed a petition asking that Barnabee and 
Frederick S. Easton bo brought into the 
suit agr.Inst the gtf)ckholders which was 
begun some time ago. The court gave a 
judgment against the stockholders for 
the debts, which were about $81.0iX), but In 
his petition he says that only $24,0o0 was 
realized, and that Barnabee and Easton 
were not included in the proceedings. Now 
he wants them brought in, and he asked 
for an order for a liearing on the mat- 
ter. The company was capitalized at $250,- 
000, and of this sum $130,900 was subscribed. 
Barnabee holds fifty shares, of a p:ir value 
of $50(»0 and Easion holds ten shares of 
a par value of $10i.tO. 

Judge Dibell made an order fixing the 
hearing on the application for March 16.

a very genial gentleman and is enjoying 
his visit to Duluth today. He remarked 
that he had been very greatly surprised 
to find such beautiful weather here. He 
had been tempted to bring a fur coat, 
in the belief that he would find it very 
cold, but he could ask for nothing finer 
in the way of winter weather.

Mrs. Sophie Johnson's Charges as 
Grounds For Divorce. 

Sophie Johnson brings before the dis- 
trict court an abundance of grounds why 
she should have a divorce from Gust 
Johnson, if she is able to substantiate 
them. She charges, in the complaint filed 
in district court this morning, not only 
extreme cruelty, but adultery and drunk- 
enness. The plaintiff is 24 and the defend- 
ant is 31 years of age, and they were 
married in Duluth in June, 1895. They now 
live In Eveleth. Mrs. Johnson alleg^es a 
large number of instances when her hus- 
band beat her, and claims that he knocked 
her down several times, blacked her eye 
and perpetrated other cruelties. The 
charges of adultery are very wide, indeed, 
covering many women specifically and 
others in a general way. She also alleges 
that he is a habitual drunkard and that 
ho stole her deeds showing title to the 
homestead and saloon. She wants a di- 
vorce, alimony and the care of her two 
children, R, J. Dlwdall, of Eveleth, is her 

A Different Reeeptlon. 

It is the custom on the board of trade 
to give Lansing R. Robinson a reception 
when he returns from his winter vaca- 
tions. Last year he came back togged 
out like an English swell, from 
"glawsses" to spats, and nol>ody even 
noticed hinj. by a previous agreement, 
«.nd w^hen they did they pretended not 
to have Jtnown he had been away. Thi.s 
morning he came back again, an<l he 
could not complain of a lack of atten- 
tion. He wa^ pulled out upon the floor 
by a large and enthusiastic crowd, and 
pressed to make a speech. When he 
mounted the steps to make his speech he 
was immt»dJately pelted with grain 
samples and things, which prompted 
him to make his speech very pointed and 
brirf. Yet It was comprehensive, and 
included all of his large committee of

The sheriff of Salmon county was a good 
story teller, says the ..ew York Sun. 
That is, he so con.sidered himself. Wheth- 
er the story so diverted his hearers or 
not was a matter of little moment to 
him; he would start a story which had no 
visible point and no apparent end and 
keep on telling it, shaking with laughter 
himself and clapping his victims on th© 
back wth his imme-nse paws. The miners 
and cattlemeir who fre<iuented Slioup's 
store at Salmon City had a social code 
of their own. Wher a man got launclieji 
into an impossible story they simply 
pulled a long siring attached to a rainer 
oversized gong which Macnabbs who rail 
tiie store had put up for the e.xpres* pur- 
1, the story teller was cut olX 


But the sheriff was better than the 
gong. The second time he started one of 
His stories Uttie Johnny Harris gave the 
goiig a pull. The sheriff paid no atten- 
tion to it and still talked. The next night 
the sheriff began to tell about a trip East. 
Ihe gong was rung until everyone in tli* 
building wiUi arm sore, and then hie 
auditois gave it up and bore with the 
siieriff as best they mlgnt until he tired 
himself out and started for home. Just 
belore he left he said: 

Mac, why don't you left that feller in 
that s bin a-ringin ? it twas me I'd git 
nuui standiii' out tliere, even if i kiiowed 
that you wuz a-lisienin' ^o me teiliu' 

When the crowd recovered from the 
shock Sam Shaw said: "Why, Mac, I 
bedieve that dern fool believe* he's a en- 
tertaining us," 

"We got to do something to head that 
old land pirate off, " said Charley Bryan, 
the miner, "because if we dont and this 
thing kee^ps up well all of us be so weak 
by spring that we won't be able to git out 
into the hills.' 

The sheriff did not come to the store 
for sonic* time after this occurrence. He 
had been obliged to make a journey into 
the hills to post some notices on a mine; 
consi>qu*ntly the crowd had had time to 
regain its spirits .1 little. Tlien, too, Sam 
Slick, a veteran stock raiser and practi- 
cal joker, hud been added to the ranks 
after a long absence from the country. 
One Saturday ni^rht the saerlff broko into 
the siore, and after buying two bits' 
Worth of tobacco- took his accustomed 
mackerel barrel and placing it neai- the 
stove in tlie center of the circle began. 

"Say, Ixiys, 1 hcerd an awful good story 
up to Lemhi county. You know this yer 
Sam Deenier? Well he's the greatest bar 
hunter in ail that county, he siaid. 

"\\'hat county is that?" broke in SlicR. 

"Lomhl," aiiEWereU the sheriff in the 
tone of a man answering the census en- 

"That cid flat-footed, black-hair«d Sam 
ain t it?" asked Slick. 

"Yes," said the sheriff hurriedly. 

"1 know him." 

"Well, ■ the sheriff continued, lookin? 
around on tho circle for confirmation, 
"th-.'y ain't no oin,- tliat kin touch the 
old Decmer on bars. Why Ive's killed 
more bars than anv man in Idaho." 

"Who told you tliat?" said Slick. 

"Why, 1 know it; I've soen the hides." 

"What kind; black, cinnamoiv or gria- 


"All kinds; don't make no matter to 
him," ^ _ 

The crowd by this time had caught the 
cue from Slick aii<l every lime the siicriff 
oponed his mouth he was plied wltii ques- 
tions, Finallv he got so confused tliat 
everv time he stanc«l to speak he could 
onlv' blurt and stutter. Then the fiooiis 
cf his anger burst loose and he rose from 
his seat and burst out of the store. Ills 
victims thought they had a good one on 
the sheriff. 

"Well, well," said Slick, when he recov- 

■ ered from the spasms of laughter into 

which the occurrence had thrown him. 

"We've got rid of the sheriff and them old 

fish tales of his'n fur good, I reckon. ' 

The sheriff didn't come around again 
for some time. About a month afterwaxl 
he sauntered into the store and went up 
to the counter. He was very much sub- 
dued and it seemed as if his pride was 
broken, , .,.. . 

"C^'od ov'nin', Mac," he said, gimmo 
two bits worth of eatin', will ye?" lUid 
when Mas handed tho tobacco out to hlra, 
he turned and stood with his elbow rest- 
ing on a pile of dress goods and listened. 
Finally he pulled his big ulster together 
as If to go. , , , ,4.,.. 

"Whar have vou bin lately, sheriff? 
said Sam Slick, seeing that there wa.s no 
danger of an Incursion on the sheriff a 

"Oh, I've beeo pretty busy up to my 
house; putting in this lectric light frona 
the plant over on the river and glttln 
things generally fixed up, I wish som«? or 
vou boys 'ud come over and take a look 
at It, Things is fixed up nice. Why don t 
vou over now? You hain't got any- 
thin' special to do?"' ...«,,. J, 

The crowd went and the sheriff sViowea 
them everything, and how the electric 
light worked. Finally he said: 

"You ain't seen the cells yet? Come 
this way." , ^ ^ a 

Then he opened the door and usherert 
the crowd in one by one through the 
broad grating. As tho last man passed, 
the sheriff instead of following him, 
banged the grating to and locked It, The 
visitors all ran back to the grating and 
tried to open it, , ,, . . . -^ 

"He^-. sheriff!" thev shouted, "this am t 
no jolie, this is blame mean. Let us out 
o* here'" 

"Take your time, gents," said thj 
sheriff, "vou ain't In no danger an* I 
hope vou ain't fn no hurry." 

Then ho pulled an armchair up In rron-t 
of the door, while the crowd waited ex - 
Pfctantlv. When he got himself settleA, 
the sheriff began: "As I was a 8Rj;lnjr 
that Saturday night, this yer old isam 
Deemer was the ornervest old cuss after 
bears that ever you sec'd." 

The visitors knew they were in for It. 
The sheriff sat there and told thcnn that 
old four-mile long He that 
was a half cousin to old Father Time 
himself, Thev had to listen, for they 
couldn't get away. When the sheriff ^s-aa 
through ho unlocked the door and BM he 
bade them good-night, he said: 

"Well, I guc-ss we are about even, so 
we kin start square next Saturday cilflTht. 
when I want to tell you a story about a 
friend of mine down in Texas named 
Robblns." ... 

But his visitors never heard his worfls; 
they just wandered away. me«dc-!ike, as 
fast as they could without running.

NeKross In Andtrson County 

South Carolina, Ar^ Held 

as Slaves. 

Columbia. S. C, Feb. 20— In the trial 
of a man namcHl Newell, charged with 
the murder of Will Hull, a young negro, 
it developed in Judge Bennett's court 
that a system of real slavery exists in 
j\ndf rson couniy. 

Hull was charged by Ne\%-ell with vio- 
lation of a labor contract. Magistrate 
Gilmer issued a warrant and gave it to 
Newell, a special deputy, who arrested 
Hull. Inatead of being taken to jail he 
was taken to Ne\\eirs stockade, where, 
it seems Newell had some 108 convicts, 
who work on his farm. He wa.s under 
no sentence of court, and had :iot been 
tried. He was guarded like a convict, 
mado to labor like a cunvict and treated 
in all respects like a convict. The man- 
ner of his death indicated that it was 
in an effort to lewe this co.nvict camy 
that he was shot like a felon. 

Contracts made out in regular form 
have been used to bind negro'-s to the 
service of whito farmers. The laborer 
agretf. to perform general farm v.-ork 
undtT the supervisoin of the employer 
or his agf-nts for a stated sum and 
length ot time, and the laborer further 
agrees at all times to Iw subject to the 
order.-; and commands of the employer, 
who shall have the right to use such 
force as he or his agents may deem 
necessary to require him to remain on 
the farm, and shall have the risht to 
lock him up for safe keeping, and if he 
should leave his farm or run away he 
.shall have the right to ..ffer a rewaid 
for his capture, the reward to be de- 
ducted from the wage<? due the labirer. 

The contract also gives the employer 
the right to trant=fer his interest in this 
contract to any other party, thus en- 
abling the emi.loyt'r to virtually sell the 
laborer to annthf»r. This system is in 
general u.'^e in Anderson, and nome of 
the wealthiest and m^ist prominent men 
in ate county are bolieved to be work- 
ing negroes under thesp contracts. 

JudgH Bennett charged the grand jury 
to summon Magistrate Gilmer and 
others and invcstigite the case tho- 

Aiat the superintendent is addicted to 
the use of intoxicants.

Canton, Ohio, Feb. 20.— George Zeigler, 
a coatm.aker, fell dead in the very 
threshold of the county infirmary. Zeig- 
ler lived in a little shanty on Piedmont 
street. He led a sort of hand-to-mouth 
existence and had not been feeling well 
all winter. He had a horror of the 
poor hou-'e. but fi.ially decdied it would 
be better for him to go there until he

was reaching for a chair when he fell 
dead. The feeling that he was disgraced

Pardon Won By Trickery By 

Man Who Slew His 


Nashville. Tenn., Feb. 20.— One of the 
most peculiar ca.=es ever heard in the 
courts of Tennessee was finally disposed 
of in the supreme court, when W. H. 
Boyer, a convict in the state prison, was 
ordered liberated. 

Boyer came from East Tennessee and 
was sentenced to life imprisonment for 
murdering his father. The old man was 
found dead in a well, and after a sensa- 
tional trial Boyer was adjudged guilty 
of the crime. 

He was lucky to escape the gibbet, but 
he had not been in prison long before he 
began to plan to get out. His fertile 
brain hit upcn the plan of petitions for 
pardon to Governor Taylor. 

Petitions began to pour in upon the 
governor making the m^st appealing 
pleas for the liberation of Boyer. These 
petitions were signed by court officers, 
county officials and prominent citizens. 
The result was that Governor Taylor's 
sympathies were touched and he un- 
conditionally pardimed Boyer. 

No sooner was the man liberated than 
Governor Taylor found he 'lad been vic- 
timized; that the great majority of the 
petitions were forgeries and that Boyer 
was the forger. He had done the work 
in the penitentiary and through con- 
federates on the outside gotten the pe- 
titions to ttie governor. Some time later 
Boyer was arrested, the governor hav- 
ing in the meantime revoked the par- 
d(vn on the ground that it had been pro- 
cun^d by fraud. 

Then Boyer went to law with the 
state. The quest irm was whether or 
not the governor had a right to revoke 
a pardon. The lower court decided 
against ftojer, but the supreme court, 
after an investigation of several weeks, 
holds that a pardon unconditional in its 
terms cannot be revoked by the execu- 
tive. The prisoner must therefore be dis- 
charged. Attorney General Pickle asked 
that Boyer be held to answer an indict- 
ment for for.gery in Cocke county, but 
the court said that it had no right to 
hold him for .my pvrpose. 

GuMt Ara on thi Squart 

and Sho la "Caininc 


Denver, Col., Feb. 20.— Mrs. John Guth 
is probably the only woman in the 
United States who is proprietor and ac- 
tive manager of a gambling house. She 
has taken to this means of livelihood to 
support her husband and family of 
small children. "The Aetna Invest- 
ment company" is the sign on the 
ground fioor of No. 1913 Larimer street, 
Denver, Col., where Mrs. Guth con- 
ducts the place. On the floor above 
are faro, roulette, .craps and poker 
games, besides a private gambling 
room for women. Mrs. Guth personally 
supervises all the details of the busi- 
ness, watches the dealers in the faro 
games, attends to the drawings in the 
policy shop and interviews the fire and 
police board when that is necessary. 
She began her career as owner of a 
gambling house about a year ago, when 
her husband's health failed. She start- 
ed in a mixlest way with a policy shop 
at her present location, and about three 
months ago established a faro room in 
another building. Two weeks ago she 
brought all her enterprises together un- 
der one roof. 

"How did I come to open a gambling 
house?'' Mrs. Guth repeated a question. 
"Well, my husband lost his health and 
could do nothing to support us. We had 
a little money, but I knew that would 
rot go far, and was casting about ior 
some way to invest it when I happened 
to read in a newspaper how Bob Austn 
(a famous gambler in Denver) had been 
fined J500, had paid it without a whim- 
per and gone right on with his business. 
1 thought there must be money in it if 
he were able to do that, so I took it up. 
1 didn't know anything about the games 
when I began, but I know all about 
them now, although I never play, and 
all the actual work is done by my em- 
ployes. I found out one thing— that is. 
to succeed in a gambling house you 
must be on the square. 1 made money 
from the start. 

"The police?" 

"Oh, sometimes! But all the games 
are on the square, and the place has 
never been raided. 

"Women are among my best patrons. 
Of course, they play in a private room. 
It would astonish you to know the 
names of some of my regular customers. 
Once a gambling passion is developed 
in a woman it seems to burn more 
fiercely than in a man. Women play 
recklessly, but they are awful hard 
losers. I myself have never wagered a 
penny at gambling. Bui don't forget 
that all the games are 'on the square.'" 

Mrs. Guth does n'">t fit the popular 
conceptior. of a woman gam»)ler. She is 
a modest little person, about 40 years 
of age, gowned very simply in black. 
Her voice is gentle and well modulated. 

"I don't like the business." she says, 
"but I have a family to care for." 

The Guths live at No. 1419 South Tenth 
street. A housekeeper takes care of the 
children while their mother is away. At 
6 o'clock every evening Mrs. Guth gives 
the place in charge of the night man- 
ager, and turns her back on her gamb- 
ling house. The rattle of the chips ani 
the calls of the gamekeeper die out of 
her hearing and presently her ears are 
filled with pleasanter sounds as she en- 
ters her cozy home and gives a mother- 
ly greeting to the little brood of flaxen- 
haired girls and boys gathered there, 
and speaks a word to bring the light 
into the tired eyes of her husband in 
his invalid's chair.

Every drop of blood, every bone, 
nerve and tissu* te <he body can be 
renewed in but ode way, and that is, 
from wholesomo f*Jod properly digested. 
There is no other v^ay and the idea that 
a medicine in itself can purify the 
blood or supply new tissues and strong 
nerves is ridiculous and on a par with 
the fol-de-rol that dyspepsia or indi- 
gestion is a germ disease or that other 
fallacy, that a weak stomach which re- 
fuses to digest food can be mad» to do 
so. by Irritating and Inflaming the 
bowels by pills and cathartics. 

Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets cure Indi- 
gestion, sour stomach, gas and bloating 
after meals, because they furnish the 
digestive principles which weak stom- 
ajcs lack, and unless the deficiency of 
pepsin and distase is supplied It Is use- 
less to attempt to cure stomach trouble 
by the use of "tonics," "pills" and ca- 
thartics'" which have absolutely no di- 
gestive power, and their only effect is 
to give a temporary stimulation. 

One grain of the active principle in 
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets will digest 
3000 grains of meat, eggs and similar 
foods and experiments have shown that 
they will do this in a glass bottle at 
proper temperature, but, of course, are 
much more effective in the stomach. 

There is probably no remedy so uni- 
versally used as Stuart's Tablets be- 
cause it is not only the sick and ailing, 
but well people who use them at every 
meal to insure perfect digestion and as- 
similation of the food. 

People who enjoy fair health take 
Stuart's Tablets as regularly as they 
take their meals, because they want 
to keep well, prevention is always better 
than cure and Stuart's Dyspepsia Tab- 
lets do both. They prevent indigestion 
and they remove it where it exists. The 
regular use of one or two of them after 
meals will demonstrate their merit and 
efficiency better than any other argu- 


Husband Did Too Much Housework 
But Was Reconciled. 

New York. Feb. 20.— Louis Enners. 
Jr., complained that his young wife 
didn't do her share of minding the baby. 
Following his suit for separation Enners 
left his home. 

He called on his wife, on Cypress ave- 
nue, Brooklyn, a few days ago, and 
ask( d as a special favor that he might 
hold the baby. The prattle of the child 
brought back old memories, and Enners 
decided they wei"e wholly pleasant. He 
then and there agreed that for baby's 
sake he would live with his wife again. 

Discontinuance pai «rs in the suit 
have been filed. 

This time, however. Enners and his 
wife have signed articles of agreement. 
Both admit that as they lived before 
the husband was burdened with too 
much housework. In his complaint En- 
ners averrtni that ;ie fejt his dignity ag- 
grieved by the favt that his wife com- 
pelled him to wash the dishes when they 
had company. She also insisted that 'le 
do his own part '>f the family sewing, 
and when he was amateurish in his 
work she scolded him. The trial of his 
suit for separation, was to have begun 
this month in the supreme court of 
Kings county. 

"I am very hapi;vy," said Mrs. Enners 
yesterday. "Louis has at last realized 
that there are joys in tending a baby 
which he did not api)reciate until they 
were taken from him. It is not right 
for a ihusband to Vash the dishes. I'll 
admit. an<l hereaft. ! I will wash the 
dishes and Louis sh; II dry them. I am 
going to do tb.e sewing in ttuj future, 

Enners says he is perfectly satisfied 
with the new arrangement.

LumbBrjack Torrorlzed a 
Camp Near Ferris— Offi- 
cers Looking For Nim. 

Cass Lake, Minn., Feb. 20.— (Special to 
The Heiald.)— Edmond White, who with 
his father. R. E. White, id logging on an 
extensive scale, near Farris, foui* miles 
west of here, was in town yesterday, ac- 
companied by his camp foreman, L. H. 
Smith. They were looking for a man 
named E. L. Woods, who one day last 
week terrorized the White camp and 
ran matters thereabouts with a high 
hand. Woods waa formerly employed at 
the White camp, and one day drew his 
"time" and went to Farris. 

He returned to the camp, considerably 
intoxicated, on Thursday of last week, 
when no one but White and Smith were 
about. Pulling a revolver from his hip 
pocket he forced White to write a check 
in his (Wood's) favor for $23. The fore- 
man attempted to interfere, and Woods 
shot at him, luckily missing him. The 
onlj firearm in the camp at the time 
was a Winchester rifle, which was 
snugly tuicked away in its case under 
White's bed, and Wo<xl3 had matters 
pretty much his own way. 

Pocketing the check, Woodau 
at the poine of his gun, 
made Smith hitch up a team 
and drive him to Farris, where he dls- 
apjjeared from view. Woods succeeded 
in getting the check cached, and re- 
maine<l in bidding, while White and 
Smith were vainly searching for him. 
There being no justice at Farris, White 
and Smith went to Park R;ipids, the 
county seat of Hubbard county, swore 
out a warrant for Woods' arrest, and, 
accompanied by Daniel Petrie, sheriff of 
Hubbard county, and his deputy, Al 
Sheerer, came to Cass Lake to look for 
Woods. It was stated that Woods had 
been seen in one of Ge<irge Lydick's log- 
ging camps, but a search of the premises 
failed to find the man wanted, and he is 
still at large.

"While the meeting of the property 
owners along Central avenue, that was 
called in Stewart's hall last evening to 
consider the paving " matter, was not 
as large as the originators had hoped it 
would be, still they feel that an advance 

has been taken in the matter, and the 
sentiment of the property owners Is 
better know n. Those that attended the 
meeting last night were strongly in 
favor of taking some steps toward get- 
ting the avenue repaved, and all felt 
the necessity of having something done 
along that line before another winter, or 
In fact another summer. Mr. Wilson, of 
Ibe lx)ard of public works, and City En- 

/ntjer McGilvray were present, and the 
.tter gave estimatet^ of the cost of dif- 
ferent kinds of material now Ufcecl in 
paving. While there was a unanimity of 
©pinion as to the necessity that paving 
Bhould l>e done, there wa.s a great differ- 
ence of opinion as to the material that 
•hould bi> used. Some favored cedar 
block« as the » heapcst kind, and because 
they would last long enough to enable 
the property owner.'^ to see if West Du- 
luth's future would warriint a greater 
outlay of money in succeeding years, 
thers thought that a more expensive 
pavement should be laid. Asjihult and 
creosote blocks were among the kinds of 
pavement mentioned. 

Steps were taken to push the petitio:i 
matter as much as possible toward get- 
ting the names of the required 25 per 
cent of the property owners along the 
avenue, when it wVH be presented to the 
council and bids asked for on the differ- 
ent materials. Then it i.-^ believed thai 
some conclusion can be reached as to 
V hich will be used in paving the ave- 
nue. Among taking part in the 
talks last evening were W. C. Sherwood, 
J. J. Frey, Frank CJottwold, J. A. Stott, 
Frank Wade, L. A. Barnes, H. A. Sun- 
deen and Dr. I. T. Burnside. 

The card party that was held in the 
Great Eastern hall last evening by the 
young ladies of St. James parish wajs 
one of the most complete sucjcdses in 
the line ever attempted in West Duluth. 
The hall was packed, many of the lale 
comers having to give up and return 
home, as it was impossible to get within 
reach of the tables, that numbered over 
forty. The ladies' head prize, a souvenir 
spoon, was won by Miv^s Julia LaSalle. 
Leon LeCnsEe won the gentlemans' head 
prize, a stamp ca.<5e. A very pleasing 
program was one of the features of the 
evenings entertainment. 

Papers summoning Edward riwenson 
to appear l)efore district court on Thurs- 
day and show cau?e why there should

clerk's office in Duluth. It is said that 
Mr. Swenson and his friends are very 
much put out over the turn of affairs. 
and are declaring that in the recount 
Jlr. Kern will loose more votes on close 
decisions than will Mr. Swenson. 


A num!>er of the friends of Mr. and

Sudden Impetus In Trade 

Between Malta and the 

United States. 

Washington. Feb. 20.— (Special to The 
Herald.)— Consul John A. Grant, in a 
communication to the state department, 
states that during the past few months 
there has been a sudden impetus in 
trade between Malta and the United 
States. Today more American goods 
may be found on sale there than for a 
great tnanv years past, and the outlook 
seems to indicate that a year from now 
will eee an increase over the present 
favorable conditions to the extent of at 
least 50 per cent. Up to two years ago 
Malta had been for a very long period 
without direct communication at other 
ports. The increase in trade may be di- 
rectly traced to the establishment of a 
direct line of steamers between New- 
York and Malta. When the line was 
established Maltese merchants were in- 
clined to be i-keptical as to Its perman- 
ency; but when it was seen that the 
steamers were arriving with reasonable 
regularity, their views changed, and In- 
duiries were made for addresses of 
American merchants. A generation had 
passed since the days of the fast Ameri- 
can clipper ships, and their disappear- 
ance resulted in an almost total ex- 
tinction of trade in our goods. Neces- 
sarily, during this interval, many 
changes occurred: business conditions 
altered on both sides of the ocean, and 
when the present direct line was insti- 
tuttd. there was a lack of information as 
to standing and addresses of business 

These addresses having been fur- 
nished, there Is today a large correspon- 
dence between merchant* of Malta and 
of the United States. 

In sending circulars and in corres- 
pondence the English language may be 
used, and all communicitions should be 
addressed to Vallette. Malta.

Says Cleveland Capitalist Failed to 
Marry Her, as Promised. ^ 

Cleveland, Feb. 2t).— Mrs. Katherine 
Wolverton, a young and beautiful so- 
ciety widow, has sued Dudley Baldwin 
for $50,000 damages to her heart by his 
refusal to marry her, as she says he 
promised. Her story of their courtship is 
that thirty days after she secured lier 
divorce from E. R. W'oiverton, in 1.S96, 
Baldwin asked her to be his wife and 
she consented. Their courtship con- 
tinued, she says, until last October 
without any day for the wedding hav- 
ing been set. Then she pressed him 
for a definite arrangement, and she says 
he said he did not intend to marry her. 

Baldwin is one of the most rominent 
capitalists of the city and a leading 
member of the Union club, as well as of 
other less prominent clubs and organ- 
izations. He is a bachelor, 55 years old 
and has been prominent in society for 
many years. 


Michigan Colored People Condemn 
Her Advice to Fight. 

Benton Harlmi-, Mich., Fel>. . 20. — Tlie 
letter from Mrs. Carrie Busby, which 
has been published, urging the colored 
people to fight for their freedom from 
lynching and mob law, does not meet 
with the approval of other colored citi- 
zens of this city, who refuse to endor.?e 
her plan for war. The following letter 
from a prominent colored citizen of this 
city was made public: 

"We the law-abiding colored citizens 
of Benton Harbor and St. Joseph, do 
heartily condemn the article written by 
Miss Carrie Bushy, one of our talented 
young colored ladies. Although we do 
not think there is a white or colored 
citizen who is law-abiding and ap- 
proves of mob violence as it is carried 
on in the South upon colored citizens, 
we beg of the South to let the law take 
its course, not mobs. But we cannot 
approve of Miss Busby's means of 
settling the race problem in the South." 


Brand Jury's Presentment Results 
In Action at Bellevue. 

New York, Fel'. 20.— Use of the 
straight-Jacket has Ijeen abandoned in 
Bellevue hospital. This applies to both 
the alcoholic ward and the insane pavi- 
lion. The exit of the jacket was 
hastened by the presentment of the 
grand jury, which said: 

"We find that for many years me- 
chanical restraints, in the nature of re- 
straining belts, strait-jackets, hand- 
cuffs, ankle cuffs and other like means, 
have been commonly used in the Belle- 
vue insane pavilion, whereas their use 
has long ago been abandoned at the 
Manhattan state hospital. Blooming- 
dale, Matteawan and most of the pro- 
minent institutions of the state."

elevated railway train had an exciting 
experience with tire today. When with- 
in three blocks of its terminus defective 
wires started a blaze in the motor car. 
Attempts to quench it with chemicals 
failed and the car soon tilled with 
smoke. The f.ames spread rapidly and 
the five passengers were compelled to 
retreat to the rear platform. The motor- 
man stuck to his post and was se- 
verely burned about the hands and 
arms" and his leg vas crushed In un- 
coupling the rear cars. He had, how- 
ever, succeeded in bringing his train to 
the terminal station, where the passen- 
gers made haste In escaping. The car 
Was burned to the trucks and the sta- 

tion platform, damaged. The loss was

of 30O.C«»,OO0 marks in New York se.em.e to 
be based purely on conjecture, S'l t:\v as 
can be learned from New York bankers. 
It is a matter that of course China will 
have to borrow to meet tht> demands up- 
on her for indemnities for the powers. It 
Is expected that the cheapest money mar- 
ket will be appealed to for resource.s for 
such a I'-an. Xow York In the circum- 
stances will be called on for at least a part 
of such a loan, but of any actual negotia- 
tion nn trace can be found. It Is not con- 
sidered probably that any plan lias yet 
been fornied for such a financial opf-Va-

Stricken Down By Heart Disease at His Resi- 
dence In Tacoma— Formerly Rector of 
St. Paul's In Duluth. 

One of the Host Popular Clergymen Ever In 

Duluth- Brilliant Nan, Full of 

Original Plans. 

Tacoma, Wash., Feb. 21.— (Special to 

The Herald.)— Bishop Barker died at his 

home here at 6:30 o'clock this mornin.g. 

The cause of his death was heart dis- 

The above announcement of the death 

of Bishop Barker will be received with 
deep sorrow by many friends in Duluth, 
having been for years the rector of St. 
Paul's Epiocopal church here, and gain- 
ing a large circle of friends and ad- 
mirers both outside and inside the 
church with which he was connected. 
Duluth has had few clergymen who 
were as generally popular as was Mr. 
Barker, and it was with regret that the 
news of his elevation to the episcopate 
was received, because it necessitated his 
removal from this city. 

Re\'. William Morris Barker was born 
May 12, lSr>4. at Towanda, Pa., and was 
educated at his father's classical school 
in Germantown. graduating from the 
University of Pennsylvania in 1873. His 
theological education was pursued at 
the Berkeley Divinity school. He was 
ordained deacon by Bishop Williams in 
1879, and priest by Bishop Doane In 1880, 
or fifteen months previous to his ordina- 
tion to the priesthood, Mr. Barker 
served at St. John's church, Troy, N. Y., 
as assistant rector. After that period 
he was the assistant at St. John's, 
Washington, D. C, for three months, 
when he was elected rector of St. Paul's, 
in the same city. Here he labored for 
six .jears, resigning to take charge of 
the extensive parish of St. Luke's. Bal- 
timore. This was his home until March, 
18S9, when he wae summoned to the 

rectorship of St. Paul's. Duluth, from 
whence he was elected to the bishopric 
of the newly formed missionary juris- 
diction In the state of Colorado. He was 
highly successful in the large and re- 
sponsible work that he was called upon 
to perform as a missionary bishop, and 
a few years later was elected bishop of 
the diocese of Olympla, making his resi- 
dence at Tacoma. There he has labored 
with much success, and the people of the 
diocese will lie plunged into mourning 
by his sudden demise. Bishop Barker 
was married a few years ago, since be- 
coming bishop of Olympla. Shortly after 
his election to the :nl?tilonary bishopric 
in Colorado, Seabury divinity school, in 
this state, conferred upon him the de- 
gree of doctor of divinity. 

Dr. A. W. Ryan, who was Bishop 
Barker's successor as rector of the St. 
Paul's parish in this city, could scarcely 
believe the news when he heard it at 
noon today. In speaking of Bishop 
Barker he said: 

"He has been threatened with heart 
trouble for some time past and was 
transferred from Western Colorado to 
the district of Olympia on account of 
the high altitude of Colorado affecting 
his heart. He did a grand work for Du- 
luth during the four years he was rec- 
tor of this farish. It was through his 
efforts that our church was enlarged, 
and the city generally was much bene- 
fited by his large public meetings for 
non -churchgoers. He was a brilliant 
man, and full of original [tans in church 
work, which he coi^Jd always put into 
execution suocessf^jlly and expeditijus- 



Duke of Westminster Who Harried Miss West 

the Other Day, is Co-respondent (a 

London Divorce Suit. 

Plaintiff is Major Atherlon of Twelfth Lancers 

Who Has Been Offered £40,000 

to Settle the Matter. 

London, Feb. 21.— MaJ. T. J. Atherton. 
second in command of the Twelfth 
(Prince of Wale.s) royal lancers, now in 
South Africa, has filed a suit for divorce 
against his wife, Mabel Louisa Ather- 
ton, naming the duke of Westminster as 
co-respondent. With the announceinent 
of the filing of the suit of Atherton vs. 
Atherton and Westminster, the Lmg- 
anticipated divorce proceedings of Maj. 
Atherton against his wife, with the duke 

of Westminster figuring in the role of 
co-respondent, have at length material- 
ized. Within the past thirty-six hour;?, 
the lawyer, who is looked upcjn as the 
leader of the divorce c<iurt bar, has been 
retained in behalf of the petitioner. 

The case cannot be aired in court at 
any rate for some months, and pos- 
sibly not before the autumn, and the 
friends of the just-married duke may 
yet succeed in compromising the matter 
and preventing a trial. But a« Maj. 
Atherton is reported to have already re- 
fused a check for £40.000, as compensa- 
tion for the injury he is said to have 
sustained, the task ahead of those who 
are trying to arrange a settlement, 
among whom is said to l)e King Edward 
himself, would eeejTi to V)e In.superative. 

The petitioner in this sensational 
scandal belongs to one of the crack regi- 
ment.'- in the British army, the Twelfth 
(Prince of Wales royaO lancers. Maj. 
Atherton ought to have succeeded to 
the command of the regiment when its 
late colonel, the earl of Alrlie. w?s killed 
in South Africa in Jime last, but he was 
passed mer in favor of Col. B. T. 
Mahon. who commanded the Briti.'»h 
foroes which relieved Mafeking. The re- 
spondent, Mabel Louisa Atherton. is a 

sister of Sir Aubrey Paul, Bart. She 

married the major in 1S92. They have 
one son, born In 1S99. Mrs. Atherton is a 
good looking, stylish woman, about 35 
years of age. She belongs to London's 
smart set. When Mrs. Atherton went to 
South Africa her husband's regiment 
was with Lord Methuen's command at 
the Modder river, and she proceeded 
there. Mrs. Atherton was at the Mod- 
der river camp with other women when 
Dr. Treve^s denounced the "i>lague of 
women" at the front in South Africa. 
The duke of Westminster, then Lord 
Belgrave, and the brother of a well- 
known South African millionaire, whose 
nam.e has also been mentioned with that 
of Mrs. Atherton, were at the same 
camp. For a long lime Maj. Atherton 
remained in ignorance of the camp gos- 
sip, but finally some of his brother offi- 
cers notified him of the fa^ts in the Mri3. Atherton returned to Eng- 
land in October, and stopped off at the 
Island of Maderia. There she took pass- 
age on a steamer which was taking the 
Duke of Westminster home. They ar- 
rived In London Nov. 3. Since the re- 
turn of Mrs. Athorton, the Grosvenor 
family (the duke's name is Hugh Rich- 
ard Arthur Groevenor) has been en- 
gaged in an attemi>t to prevent the case 
getting into the courts. The countess of 
Grosvenor, the duke's mother. Invited 
Mrs. Atherton to her house. This move 
silenced the gossip? for some time. Then 
C3me the report of the service of a cita- 
tion on the duke of Westminster the day 
of his marriage, which was disproved by 
the fact that the suit was not then filed. 
The duke of Westminster was married 
at St. Paul's church,>ridge, 
London, Feb. 16. to Miss Shelagh We~!t, 
daughter of Col. William Cornwallis

Efidence Thattlie City Has 

Been Befrauded For 

Several Years. 


Bogus Cartlficates Amounting 

to From $20,000 to $100,- 

000 Were Casiied. 

(Milwaukee, Feb. 21.— The Sentinel 
says: Evidence has been brought to light 
which shows the city of Milwaukee has 
been systematically defrauded for years. 

How much the city treasury has suf- 
fered is not known exactly, but an in- 
vestigation which has been conducted 
for the past two days by City Treaourer 
Bollow shows that the city has been de- 
frauded out of a sum which is estimated 
anywhere from $20,000 to $100,000, and it 
may even be greater. 

The investigation has not progressed 
far enough so that the names of any one 
can be connected with the scandal, but 
the operations by which this great 
amount of money was taken from the 
city treasury have extended over a 
period of several years, and according 
to the revelations made thus far, for- 
gery, raised figures and the theft of the 
printing of false city certificates, which 
Q\iy Treasurer Bollow has secured by 
tracing up a few of the old city certifi- 
cates, that there has been an organized 
movement for years to defraud the city. 

The manner In which thos« implicated 
have operated was either to raise the 
{■mounts of city certificates given to con- 
tractors for work done or to issue fraud- 
uler t certificates, sometimes in the name 
of living contr.i 'ors, sometimes in the 
names of men who have been dead for 
years. The names of the members of the 
board of i>ublic works and the city comp- 
tt oiler were forged to these certificates. 

There is no means of telling at present 
what amount the city has lost, but It In 
kr.own that the operations in these fraud- 
ulent certificates extended back to 1894, 
and It Is Intimated they may extend allU 
further back. 

The discovery was made through an ac- 
cident. A representative of one of the 
trust companies which has been loaning 
money on city certificates came into the 
citv treasurer's office. They fell into 
Treasurer Hollow's hands, and he im- 
mediately discovered they were not gen- 


ReUroads Want Full Price 

For Bringing Soldiers 

From Coast. 

Chicago, Feb. 21.— The Tribune says: 
General passenger agents of the trans- 
continental roads in session in this city 
considered measures for the absolute 
maintenance of military rates. Many 
of the regiments in the Philippines are 
expected to return home in the near 
future and the roads are anxious to 
prevent a scramble for the business by 
the various lines and the cutting of 
rates below a paying basis. A pool is 
now being formed in connection with 
this business and it is to be divided 
equally among all competing roads. To 
carryout this agreement It was decided 
that no bids shall be made by individual 
roads, but that hereafter Chairman 
McLeod, of the W« stem Passenger a.s- 
sociation. is to put in a bid for all roaJs 
whenever the government asks for

Possible Effect of the Morgan Consolidation 

Is Being Discussed and Announcement 

of Details Is Awaited. 

Leading Men Assert True Policy Must Be to 

Secure Economies and Share Them 

With the f- nsumers. 

New York. Fe 3. 21. — Anent the stee /.. 
situation the ^ron Age today says-: 
Pending the official announcement <2 
the details of the Morgan consolidatio-«r 
tho trade is at .sea as to its possil. 
effect, which no Dne, whatever his co 
nection with tlie industry, can esca 
A large capitali:!ation and the facts 
point in that direction, means very 
heavy fixed cha -ges, which in turn 
would imply ability on the part of out- 
siders. Certain y no new enterprises 
would enter the ists without very sub- 
stantial flnanciitl backing, and with 
u'nple provisions for raw rnatcrial. All 
will depend upon the management, 
which must bu broad and tactful. 
Crowding prices would be fateful in 
many ways. Leading mon point out that 
the true policy must be to secure econ- 
omics and shart them with the con- 
sumers. In othe ' words, the plan must 
be to persistently lower prices. With 
control of every; hin^ the ground 
up, there will be little excuse for fluc- 
tuations, and a steadying of the mar- 
kets must be a natural result. If it were 
not that the situation in steel billets is 
peculiar, one of the flrst steps should 
be a lowering in the price, which would 
do much to allay public apprehension. 

The Iron Age t jday says of conditions 
in the iron trad?: The feature of the 
week has been the heavy buying of pig 
iron, notably for steel purposes. Some 
large sales of B»semer pig have been 
made in the valleys, and the market has 
risen squarely. A leading Interest in 
the Pittsburg district has purchased 
heavily of Basic pig iron in nearly all 
the markets. i^irmingham, Virginia, 
Eastern and IVestern Pennsylvania 
furnaces have teen sellers, the total 
quantity of basic pig involved probably 
being not far fro n 60,000 to 70,000. There 
have also been sales aggregating at 
least 204)00 tons if pig iron by furnaces 
in the Lebanon valley, and there have 
been transaction 3 in Pittsburg of round 
lots of mill iron. The suspicion that all 
these transactions have been carried 
through in order to give the iron market 
an appearance cf buoyancy In view of 
the finan«lal developments does not 
seem justified. In foundry iron the cast 
Iron pipe f ^und ies have been buying 
some round lots tast and, and there 
is generally a somewhat better feeling. 

There is a grcwing scarcity of steel. 

.nd premiums are being paid for prompt 
lelivery. The fact that some of the 
consolidation finishing mills are ham- 
pered in tiielr operations by the absence 
of steel is a proof that there is no con- 
certed movement among the works in 
the billet pool to educate the buyers up 
to a meditated advance. 

In the wire rod market the burning of 
a New England mill has created quite 
a gap. It is understood that the works 
had about 15,000 tons on their books. 
The leading wire interest reports a very 
heavy business. During the flrst days of 
this month specifications were received 
carrying about 60,000 tons of products, 
as compared with about 80,000 tons for 
the whole of January. 

A very large tonnage of structural 
material keeps coming up. The leadlngf 
bridge concern has taken about 35,000 
tons in one week. Including 28,000 tons 
for bridges on the New York Central 
road. In the Chicago district heavy 
transactions are reported In iron and 
steel bars, and the prices have again 
hardened after their brief spell of eas- 
ing. In every direction there is evi- 
dence of a large consumption, encour- 
aged, no doubt, by the moderate prices 
which prevail In nearly every branch. 
The trade has evidently outlived the evil 
effects of the boom and confidence in 
value Is restored. The enormous pres- 
sure on the Connellsvllle coke region is 
proof of the great activity among the 
furnaces and the foundries. Very little 
is doing in any branch of the export 
trade in the heavy lines of iron and 

New York, Feb. 21.— A dispatch to tho 
Tribune from London says: The de- 
pression in the British iron and steel 
trades formed the keynote of the duke 
of Devonshire's address to the rfiare-' 
holders of tho Furness railway, over 
which he presides. He attributed the 
present condition of affairs to the keen 
American competition, and expressed 
the opinion, especially in regard to steel 
rails, that the competition would become 
even more acute and that further de- 
pression in the home industry was in- 
evitable. Sir Christopher Furness, in 
proposing at Newcastle that the famous 
Stephenson works should have bigger 
accommodation, mentioned as his reason 
the fact that the American locomotive 
trade has Increased 450 per cent, while 
England's trade has decreased 25 per 


Western Members Not Pleased With the Presi 

dent's Selection of a Corporation Lawyer 

For Attorney Ceneral. 

Washington, Fsb. 21.— (Special to The 
Herald.) — Western members of congress 
and politicians f -om that section of the 
country are not entirely pleased over the 
announcement that P. C. Knox, of Pitts- 
burg, is slated f jr attorney gene.-al, to 
succeed Mr. Griggs, who will retire on 
March 4. These men from the West are 

of the opinion, first, that the West 
should be given this place; and, second, 
that it will not be good politics for the 
president to select a corporation lawyer 
for this position. Protests have already 
been lodged at the White House against 
the appointment of Knox.

Stricken Down By Heart Disease at His Resi* 

denes In Tacoma— Formerly Reotor of 

St. Paul's In Duluth. 

One of file Most Popular Clergymen Ever In 

Dulutli- Brilliant Man, Full of 

Original Plans. 

Tacoma, "Wasfi., Feb. 21.— (Special to 

The Herald.) — Bishop Barker died at his 

home here at 6:30 o'clock this mornins. 

The cause of his death was heart dis- 

The above announcement of the death 
of Bishop Barker will lie received with 
deep sorrow by many friends in Duluth, 
having been for years the rector of St. 
Paul's Epiecopal church here, and gain- 
ing a large circle of friends and ad- 
mirers both outside and inside the 
church with which he was connected. 
Duluth has h:id few clergymen who 
were as generally popular as was Mr. 
Barker, and it was with regret that the 
news of his elevation to the eidscopate 
was received, because It necessitated his 
removal from this city. 

Rev. William Morris Barker was born 
May 12, isr>4, at Towanda, Pa., and was 
educated at his father's classical school 
in Germantown, graduating from the 
University of Pennsylvania in 1873. His 
theological cducati<m was pursued at 
the Berkeley Divinitj school. He was 
ordained deacon by Bishop Williams in 
187y, and priest by Bishop Doane In 1880. 
or fifteen months previous to his ordina- 
tion to the priesthood. Mr. Barker 
served at St. John's church, Troy, N. Y., 
as assistant rector. After that period 
he was the assistant at St. John's, 
Washington, D. C, for three months, 
when he was elected rector of St. Paul's, 
in the same city. Here he labored for 
six years, resigning to take charge of 
the extensive parish of St. Luke's. Bal- 
timore. This was his home until March, 
ISs?, when he wa« summoned to the 

rectorship of St. Paul's. Duluth, from 
whence he was elected to the bishopric 
of the newly formed missionary juris- 
diction in the state of Colorado. He was 
highly successful in the large and re- 
sponsible work that he was called upon 
to perform as a missionary bishop, and 
a few years later was elected bishop of 
the dlo.?ese of Olympla, making his resi- 
de nee at Tacoma. There he has labored 
with much success, and the people of the 
diocese will l)e plunged into mourning 
by his sudden demise. Bishop Barker 
■was married a few years ago, since be- 
coming bishop of Olympia. Shortly after 
his election to the :n!Fi=ionary bishopric 
in Colorado, Seabury divinity school, in 
this state, conferred upon him the de- 
gree of doctor of divinity. 

Dr. A. W. Ryan, who was Bishop 
Barker's successor as rector of the St. 
Paul's i^arlsh in thJ« city, could scarcely 
believe the news when he heard it at 
noon today. In speaking of Bisliop 
Barker he said: 

"He has been threatened with heart 
trouble for some time past and was 
transferred from Western Colorado to 
the district of Olympia on account of 
the high altitude of Colorado affecting 
his heart. He did a grand work for Du- 
luth during the four years he was rec- 
tor of this i>arish. It was through his 
efforts that our church was enlarged, 
and the city generally was much bene- 
fited by his largo public meetings for 
non-churohgoers. He was a brllilaiu. 
man, and full of original plans in church 
work, which he coi^ld always put Into 
execution successfully and expeditious- 



Duke of Westminster Who Harried Uliss West 

the Other Day, is Go-responflentin 

London Divorce Suit. 

Plaintiff is Major AtherSon of Twelfth Lancers 

Who Has Been Offered £40,000 

to Settle the Matter. 

London. Feb. 21.— Maj. T. J. Atherton. 
second in command of the Twelfth 
(Prince of Wales) royal lancers, now in 
South Africa, has tiled a suit for divorce 
asainst his wife, Mabel Louisa Ather- 
ton, naming the duke of Westminster as 
co-respondent. With the announcement 
of the filing of the suit of Atherton vs. 
Atherton and Westminster, the long- 
anticipated divorce proceedings of Maj. 
Atherton against his wife, with the duke 
of Westminster figuring in the role of 
co-resjiondent, have at length material- 
ized. Within the past thirty-six hour:-, 
the lawyei'. who is looked upon as the 
leader of tho divoree court bar, has been 
retained in behalf of the petitioner. 

The case cannot be aired in court at 
any rate for some months, and pos- 
sil^Iy not before the autumn, and the 
friends of the just-married duke may 
yet succeed in compromising the matter 
and preventin.i; a trial. But a« Maj. 
Atherton is reported to have alreaily re- 
fused a check for £4O.00ft. as compensa- 
tion for the injury he is said to have 
sustained, the task ahead of those who 
are trying to arrange a i^ettlement, 
anion?:: whom is said to he King Edward 
himself, would seem to be insupeiativc. 

The petitioner in this sensational 
scandal bekuigs to one of the crack regi- 
ments in the British army, the Twelfth 
(I'linie of Wales royal) lancers. Maj. 
Atherton ought to have succeeded to 
the command of the regiment when its 
late colonel, the earl of Airlie, w^s killed 
in South Africa in June last, but he was 
j;;issed 1 ver in favttr of Col. V,. T. 
Mahon. who cmimanded the British 
forces which relieved Mafekin?. The re- 
spondent, Mabel Louisa Atherton, is a 

sister of Sir Aubrey Paul, Bart. She 
married the major in is:)2. They hav.- 
one son, born in 1899. Mrs. Atherton is a 
good looking, stylish woman, alM)ut 3.') 
years of age. She belongs to London's 
smart set. When Mrs. Atherton went to 
South Africa her husband's regiment 
was with Lord Methuen's command at 
the Modder river, and she proceeded 
there. Mrs. Atherton was at the Mod- 
der river camp with other wi>men when 
Dr. Trevc-3 denounced the "i>lagup of 
women" at the front In South Africa. 
The duko of Westminster, then Lord 
Belgrave, and the brother of a well- 
known South African millionaire, whose 
name has also been mentioned with that 
of Mrs. Atherton, were at the same 
camp. For a long time Maj. Atherton 
remained in ignorance of the camp gos- 
sip, but finally some of his brother offi- 
cers notified him of the facts in the 
case. Mna. Atherton returned to Eng- 
land in nctoi>er. and stopped off at the 
Island of Maderia. There she took pass- 
age on a steamer which was taking the 
Duke of Westminster home. They ar- 
rived in London Nov. ."?. Since the re- 
turn of Mrs. Ath« rton. the Grosvenor 
family (the duke's name is Hugh Rich- 
ard Arthur Grosvenor) has been en- 
gaged in an attemi't to prevent the case 
getting into the oui ts. The countess of 
('roiivenor. the duke's mtither. invited 
Mrs. Atherton to her house. This move 
silenced the gossij's for some time. Then 
c.^me the report of the service of a cita- 
tion on the duke of Westminster the day 
of his marriage, wliir-h was disproved by 
the fact that the suit was not then filed. 
The duke of Westminster was married 
at St. Paul's church, Knightsl>rid;xe, 
L- ndon, Feb. 16. to Miss Shelagh Wet?t, 
daughter of Col. William Cornwallis

Evidence Thattlie City Has 

Been Befrauded For 

Several Years. 


Bogus Certificates Amounting 

to From $20,000 to $100,- 

000 Were Caslied. 

Milwaukee, Feb. 21.— The Sentinel 
says: Evidence has been brought to light 
which shows the city of Milwaukee has 
been systematically defrauded for years. 

How much the city treasury has suf- 
fered is not known exactly, but an in- 
vestigation which has been .onducted 
for the past two days by City Treasurer 
Bollow shows that the city has been de- 
frauded out of a sum which is estimated 
anyw-here from $20,000 to $100,000, and it 
may even l>e greater. 

The investigation has not progressed 
far enough so that the names of any one 
can be connected with the scandal, init 
the operations by which this great 
amount of money was taken from the 
city trea.sury have extended over a 
period of several years, and according 
to the revelations made thus far, for- 
gery, raised figures and the theft of the 
printing of false city certificates, which 
CMty Treasurer Bollow has secured by 
tracing up a few of the old city certifi- 
cates, that there has been an organized 
movement for years to defraud the city. 

The manner In which those implicated 
have operated was either to raise the 
rmounts of city certificates given to con- 
tractors for work done or to issue fraud- 
ulert certificates, sometimes in the name 
of living contr.T, 'ors, sometimes in the 
n<';me3 of men who have been dead for 
years. The names of the members of the 
board of public works and the city comp- 
ti oiler were forged to these certificates. 

There is no means of tellinpr at present 
what amount the city has lost, but it Is 
known that the operations in these fraud- 
ulent certificates extended back to 1894, 
«nd It is intimated they may extend atlll 
further back. 

The discovery was made through an ac- 
cident. A representative of one of the 
trust comijanies which has been loaning 
monev on city certificates came into the 
citv treasurer's office. They fell into 
Treasurer Hollow's hands, and he im- 
mediately dlacovered they were not gen- 



Railroads Want Full Price 

For Bringing Soldiers 

From Coast. 

Chicago, Feb. 21.— The Tribune says: 
General passenger agents of the trai-s- 
continental roads in session in this city 
considered measures for the absolute 
maintenance of military rates. Many 
of the regiments in the Philippines are 
expected to return home in the near 
future and the roads are anxious to 
prevent a scramble for the by 
the various lines and the cutting of 
rates below a paying basis. A po<d is 
now being formed in connection with 
this business and it is to be divided 
equally among all competing roads. To 
carryout this agreement It was decided 
that no bids shall be made by individual 
roads, but that hereafter Chairman 
McLeod, of the Western Passenger as- 
sociation, is to put in a bid for all roa Is 
whenever the government asks for

Possible Effect of tlie Morgan Consolidation 
Is Being Discussed and Announcement 
of Details Is 

Leading Men Assert True Policy Must Be to 

Secure Economies and Share Them 

With the \t fflsumers. 

New York. F ?b. 21. — Anent the stee y. 
situation the Iron Age today says-: 
Pending the official announcement <2 
the details of tl e Morgan consolidatio-^ 
the trade is at sea as to its possil. 
effect, which no one, whatever his cc 
nection with tl:e Industry, can esca 
A large capitalization and the facts 
point in that direction, means very 
heavy fixed charges, which in turn 
would imply ability on the part of out- 
siders. Certainly no new enterprises 
would enter the lists without very sub- 
stantial financial backing, and with 
'I'jiple provision? for raw maleiial. All 
will depend upon the management, 
whicii must l)e broad and tactful. 
Crowding prices would be fateful In 
many ways. Leading ni.m point out that 
the true policy must be to secure econ- 
omics and share them with the con- 
sumers. In oth ?r words, the plan must 
be to persistently lower prices. With 
control of everrt-hin^ the grouiid 
up, there will te little excuse for fiuc- 
tuations, and a steadying of the mar- 
kets must be a natural result. If it were 
noi that the sit aatiou In steel billets Is 
peculiar, one o:' the first steps should 
be a lowering In the price, which would 
do much to allay public apprehension. 

The Iron Age today says of conditions 
in the Iron trale: The feature of the 
week has been .he heavy buying of pig 
iron, notably fcr steel purposes. Some 
large sales of Bessemer pig have been 
made In the val eys, and the market has 
risen squarely. A leading Interest in 
the Pittsburg .listrict has purchased 
heavily of Basic pig iron in nearly all 
the markets. Birmingham, Virginia, 
Eastern and W'estern Pennsylvanl.-'. 
furnaces have been sellers, the t Ual 
quantity of has c pig lnv(dved probably 
being not far frim 60,000 to 70,000. There 
have also been sales aggregating at 
least 20,000 tons of pig Iron by furnaces 
in the Leban(m valley, and there have 
been transactions in Pittsburg of round 
lots of mill Iron. The suspicion that all 
those transactions have been carried 
through in order to give the Iron market 
an appearance of buoyancy In view of 
the finantdal developments does not 
seem justified. In foundry Iron the cast 
Iron pipe foundries have been buying 
some round lots east and west, and there 
is generally a somew hat belter feeling. 

There is a glowing searcity of steel. 

.nd premiums are being paid (or prompt 
lelivery. The fact that some of the 
.consolidation finishing mills are han- 
pered In their operations by the absence 
of steel Is a proof that there is no con- 
certed movement among the works in 
the billet pool to educate the buyers up 
to a meditated advance. 

In the wire rod market the burning of 
a New England mill has created quite 
a gap. It is understood that the works 
had about 15,000 tons on their books. 
The leading wire Interest reports a very 
heavy business. During the first days of 
this month specifications were received 
carrying about 60,000 tons of products, 
as compared with about 80,000 tons for 
the whole of January. 

A very large tonnage of structural 
material keeps coming up. The leading 
bridge concern has taken about 35.000 
tons in one week. Including 2S.0OO tons 
for bridges on the New York Central 
road. In the Chicago district heavy 
transactions are reported In Iron and 
steel bars, and the prices have again 
hardened after their brief spell of eas- 
ing. In every direction there Is evi- 
dence of a large consumption, encour- 
aged, no doubt, by the moderate prices 
■which prevail In nearly every branch. 
The trade has evidently outlived the evil 
effects of the boom and confidence in 
value is restored. The enormous pres- 
sure on the Connellsville coke region Is 
proof of the great activity among the 
furnaces and tSie foundries. Very little 
Is doing In any branch of the export 
trade In the heavy lines of iron and 

New York, Feb. 21.— A dispatch to the 
Tribune from London says: The de- 
pression in the British iron and steel 
trades formed the keynote of the duke 
of Devonshire's address to the rfnare- 
holders of the Furness railway, over 
which he presides. He attributed the 
present condition of affairs to the keen 
American competition, and expressed 
the opinion, especially In regard to steel 
rails, that the eompetition would become 
even more acute and that further de- 
pression In the home industry was In- 
evitable. Sir Christopher Furness, In 
proposing at Newcastle thai the famous 
Stephenson works should have bigger 
accommodation, mentioned as his reason 
the fact that the American locomotive 
trade has increased 4uO per cent, while 
England's trade has dect^a.sed 25 per

Doubtful If Van Waldersea Carries Out His 

Plans On Account of Energetic 

Protest On All Sides. 

Berlin, Feb. 21.— The expeditionary of 
plans of Field Mar»=hal Count Von Wal- 
dersee continue in disfavor with the 
larger part of the German press. The 
Vorwaerts today says that if the Ger- 
man governme:it, in view of the litest 
satisfactory te egrams received from 
Saian Fu, should not declare its inten- 
tion to abandon the propot-ed expedi- 
tions, the representatives of the nation 
will force an opportunity in the roich- 
stag to energetically protest against 
such plans, which might lead to tho 
gravest Inierr ational entanglements 
and indefinitely prolong the war in 
China. The rBichslag, says the Vor- 
vvaert.s, cannot be ignored oy the gov- 
ernment now as it was in the summer 

of l'."W.

The Punishment 6f Officials Named By Envoys 

of the Powers Has Been Agreed 

to By the Court. 

There is Some Doubt, However, If the Edict 

Is Carried Out By the Parties 

Most Interested. 

Pekln. Feb. 21.— Prince Ching and Li 
Hung Chang have received telegraphic 
int^lructions from the court to notify the 
mli'isters of the powers that an edict 
has been issued regarding the punish- 
ments of Chinese ufTicials, confirmatory 
of the demands made by the ministers, 
as follows: 

"Gen. Tung Fuh Sian. to be degraded 
and deprived of his rank. 

"Prime Tuan and Duke Lan, to be 
disgraced and exiled. 

"Princ L Chuang, Ying Nien and Chao 
Shu Chian, to commit suicide. 

"Hsu Chen Yu. Yu Hsicn and Hi Hain, 
to be beheaded." 

This is not exactly what the ministers 
deinaniied, hut it is considt-red advisable 
to agree to it. as the demand for livevs 
(has heen agreed to. ex>.opt in the case of 
Gen. Tung Fuh Sian. whom the court is 
powerless to molest. There is a private 
understanding that his life will be 
claimed when it Is possible. 

The European and Chinese fiecretarios 
of legations and others, who have lived 
in China for years, c(Misi(1er that China 
has Kain.^d f. victory, as the only man 
the court ha.>^ to behead is Yu Hsl<^n. 
The other two are in the hands of the 
Japanese, and could be beheaded when 
thiir execution is wanted. Suicide is no 
di*'f;race whatever in the eyes of the 
Chi nose. 

No o!it believes Gen. Tung Fuh Sian 
Will ever suffer punishment. 

People here say Chinese imperial 
edicts are very unstable do:?uments. 
especially when private edicts to the 
executive ort'cials aecompany the public 
edicts. A recent decree ordered all the 
indicated flTIcials to commit suicide, yet 
it is evident a stcret «Mlict was sent in- 
structincr the i ersons implicated not to 
obey. What iioof. it is asked, is there 
now that the icms of the decree will be 
carried out. 

Prime Ching Is greatly alarmed at 
the i>i cparations for the military expe- 
ditions into the interior. He asks why 
they are not countermanded, now timt 
China has agreed to the demands of 
the powers, instead of which the prep- 
arations continue. 

.J. Fowirr, the T'nited States consul 
at Che Foo. has sent Minister Conger a 
proclamation issued by Y'uen Shi Kai, 
the governor of the province of Shan 
Tung, giving protection to the mission- 
aries and offering a reward of 200 taels 
for the capture of any of the ringlead- 
ers of the recent disturl)ances, and of- 
fering a reward of 100 taels for the cap- 

ture of others than those actually com- 
mitting outrages. 

The civil and military authorities will 
be held strictly accountable for the 
good order of their districts. When out- 
rages are committed they will be dis- 
graced and reported to the throne. 
Where no outrages occur for three 
years the civil and military authorities 
will be rewarded by a merit tablet and 

The merchants of Tien Tsin have sent 
a memorial to Gen. Chaffee, asking him 
to resume the occupation of the Fi r- 
mosian concession, long ago given up 
and unoccupied, though both the Brit- 
ish and German commanders talk of 
annexing it. The merchants point cut 
that they will be badly handicapped 
without the concession as they will have 
to i»ay wharfage to a foreign power as 
well as the Chinese officials. The gen- 
eral desires that the matter be referred 
to Minister Conger for decision. 

Washington, Feb. 21. — A cablegram 
has been received at the state depart- 
ment from Minister Conger stating 
that the Chinese plenipotentiaries have 
informed the foreign ministers that the 
emperor has agreed to all the punish- 
ments named in his (Conger's) tele- 
gram of Feb. G last. The persons named 
in the telegram referred to, with the 
punishments prescribed, were as fol- 
lows: For Princes Tuan and Lan. deg- 
radation and exile: the death penalty 
for Yu Ilsien, Chlm Liu and Hsu- 
Sheng-Y^u, the two latter being prison- 
ers of the Japanese; posthumous hon- 
ors for the four members of the tsunj: 
li yamen, who were executed last sum- 
mer by the Chinese because of tht^^r 
intercession for the foreigners. The 
great difliculty in the way of executing 
Gen. Tung I'\i Slang, being recognized 
by the ministers. It was agreed that 
some punishment be determined on 
later, should be administered to him 
when it was possible to do so, 

A subsequent message from Minister 
Conger includes In the punishment list, 
and it Is understood they are also In- 
cluded in the emperor's promise just 
given, Chuang, who is to be executed, 
Choa Su-Chia. Ylng Nien. Chi Hsu. 
Yins Nien Chi Su and Hsu-Chens-Yu. 
who are to be punished in some method 
yet to I)e determined. It is still un- 
certain whether Mr. C'^nger's message 
marks the passage of this important 
phase of the Chinese quest ioi: relative 
to punishments and the taking up of 
the questions of indemnity and guar-

The Place to Take Preacriptlons. 

Likely to Add More Compli- 
cations to Alaskan Bound- 
ary Diipute. 

From Hii Htrald 
Washincton Burtau. 

Washington, Feb. 21.— (Special to The 
Herald.)— Reports have reached this 
city that gold deposits have been found 
in that section of Alaslia formerly re- 
garded as United States territory, but 
which under the modus Vivendi has 
been transferred to British Columbia. 

These discoveries and the filing of 
claims by American miners to locations 
in territory now held by the British are 
likely to add further complications to 
the Alasl<an boundary dispute. Presi- 
dent McKlnley has already received i>e- 
titlons from American miners from 
what is icnown as the Porcupine region, 
and Secretary Hay, it is said, has as- 
sured the petitioners that such rights 
as they held prior to the modus Vi- 
vendi will be preserved. There will, 
however, undoubtedly be the same con- 
tention as to the st-atus of claims lo- 
cated In the disputed strip since Octo- 
ber, 181*9, when the modus Vivendi went 
Into effect, and of other claims to be lo- 
cated in a new section which many 
prospectors are preparing to Invade this 

Under the terms of the temporary ar- 
rangement with Gieat Britain a large 
slice of territory at the head of the Lynn 
canal, in the vicinity of Skagway and 
Dyea, which has been under the United 
States flag since its settlement by tHe 
whites, has been passed over to British 
control. To the north and west a wild 
region exists, to which prospectors are 
now turning their attention. It is al- 
leged by American miners that while 
our government was In Ignorance of the 
fact that gold In paying quantities ex- 
isted in the section surrendered, the 
British were better Informed. 

It is now said that within forty-five 
miles of the vlllase of Haines, and 
about the same distance from Klukwan, 
three creeks have been found whose 
gold deposits equal those of the Klon- 
dike. One of these rivulets has been 
named Bear creek, while another Is- 
called Clear creek. These two streams 
empty into the Porcupine river, and are 
near the head of Chilkat Inlet. The near- 
est point reached by steamer i.s Haines, 
though it is said that three lines of 
steamers will run to Klukwan as soon 
as navigation opens. 
' Mrs. Mary E. Hitchcock, who wrote 
a hook entitled "Two Women In the 
Klondike," and who has large Interests 
near Skagway, is preparing to go to the 
new rcRion In the spring. 

"I am satisfied that the reports from 
what is known as the British Porcu- 
pine river district are not exaggerated, " 
said Mrs. Hitchcock recently. "There 
are less than 100 men on the ground 
now, and some of those have gone in 
this winter over the ice. The place 
has been very difficult of access, but 
there Is now talk of running an ele.-"- 
tric railroad there from Haines. The 
distance is forty-five miles in a straight 
line and the project Is feasible. I liave 
received a letter from J. Karol 
kowski, an expert, who says that three 
creeks have been prospected and all 
surface washings have shown fine gold. 
At a depth of four feet coarse gold has 
been found, which has washed as high 
as $5 the pan. This gold is found all 
the way down to seven feet, at which 
depth the water stops further progress. 
"I have been through many parts of 
Alaska, and in my opinion the most 
marvelous Is that Included in the 
modus Vivendi. There are at least 
1000 claims staked out in this section. 
I do not know whether the prospectors 
will be permitted to hold the land per- 
manently or not, hut I know we now 
pay all fees to and file all claims with 
the l^rltlsh commissioner. They allow 
us claims 1000 feet In length, while the 
United States limits us to lOO-foU 
claims. This difference in the size cf 
claims may tnake confusion when the 
boundary Is finally located. 

"I know of three millionaires from 
New York city who are going to visit 
the new country in the spring. Thoy 
are all going out with an eye to busi- 
ness. If conditions warrant, railroads 
will be built and steamship lines started 
which will open up the new Klondike. 
Xavigation will not be open until early 
In June Several parties will start."

For Iha Cura aff Catarrh. 

A physician now retired from prac- 
tice, but wlljc> still keeps abreast of the 
times, in speakiqg of the advance made 
In medicine In the last ten years, says: 
"One of the most obstinate and baffling 
diseases is the very common trouble, 

Nasal catarrh is only one of its niany 
forms; catarrh of the throat, catarrh of 
the stomach, bowels, liver and bladder 
are very common, but the sufferer 
usually thinks it is something else than 
catarrh and is treated for the wrong 

Tlie best and most succeflsful treat- 
ment for any form of catarrh is now 
admitted to be by internal remedies 
through the stomach, and the safest and 
probably the most efficient is in the 
tablet form, sold by druggists as Stu- 
art's Catarrh Tablets. 

I have seen many remarkable cures of 
catarrh resulting from regular dally use 
of these tablets, which seem to act on 
the blood and liver, driving the catarrhal 
IX)lson out of the system through the 
natural channels. 

I once had occasion to analyze these 
tablets and found them to contain no 
cocaine nor opiates, but simply a com- 
liination of harmless antiseptics like 
Eucalyptal, Gualacol. blood root, etc. 

At any rate, I have known of severe 
catarrhal headaches which were cured 
by Stuart's Catarrh Tablets, and ca- 
tarrhal deafness, hay fever, asthma and 
catarrh of the throat and stomach speed- 
ily show great benefit after a few days' 
use of the remedy, and when it is re- 
membered how much more convenient a 
tablet is than inhalers, douches, salves 
and powders. It Is not surprising that 
this new preparation should so rapidly 
supplant all other remedies for catarrh.

Menday Evening, Ftb. 26. 

Tickets on sale at Chamberlain & Taylor's. 

The petition to be presented the city 
council asking for the repavement of 
Central avenue is being pushed as fast 
as possible. Through a misunderstand- 
ing It was stated yesterday that the plan 
was to get the matter before the council 
and then to advertise for bids on '«.he 
cost of paving with different materials. 
The idea is to get in the petition and 
then take steps to learn the cost of ma- 
terials, hold another meeting of the 
property owners and reach some deci- 
sion as to which material will be used, 
before any bids are asked for, as it is 
the general opinion that it would l>e 
difficult to get any bids under other 
circumstances. As near as can be 
learned through inquiry, the idea of 
paving with cedar blocks seems to find 
the most favor. Its advocates claim 
that it will last for ten years, and by 
that time things will so have shaped 
tliemselves that it will be known beyond 
a doubt what new Industries will re- 
place the sawmills, where they will be 
located with reference to the rest of the 
business portion of West Duluth, 
whether Central avenue or some other 
street will be the principal business 
street, \\tiether the blast furnace and 
the car shops will operate, new cake 
ovens be built, etc. All of these things, 
they argue, ought to infiuence in the 
selection of a cheaper pavement at the 
present time, but .some kind of a pave- 
ment they m\ist have. 

A very interesting time was had by 
the members of the West Duluth lodge. 
No. 145. A. O. U. W., in Gilley's hall 
last evening. After the regular meet- 
ing the losing side in the membership 
contest furnished a splendid bachelors' 
supper for the winners. The winning 
side was captained by Humphrej' Jones, 
while George O'Brien was captain of 
the losing side. Twenty-five members 
was the result of the contest, which was 
very close. A surprise was sprung on 
the Workmen when the ladies of the 
Degree of Honor descended on them In 
full force and helped dispose of the 
supper. The committee on arrange- 
ments invited the ladies, but did not 
tip it off to the rest "of the members, 
hence the pleasant surprise. After the 
supper a social time was enjoyed for 
about two hours. 

There was a regular epidemic of run- 
aways on Central avenue yesterday 
afternoon, and the excitement during 
the melee is said to be greater than ever 
Ijefore experienced at West Duluth in 
the memory of the oldest inhabitapt. 
The ball was opened by a team belong- 
inpr to H. R. Patterson, that was frlg^ht- 
ened In some manner and broke loose 
from a pole In front of the Great East- 
ern. This runaway frightened the horse 
hitched to Nilsen & Evjen's delivery 
wagfon and it started north on Central 
avtnue, taking the sidewalk and thus 
showing its scorn of the uneven pave- 
ment. The last runaway started the 
horses hitched to two other rigs, and 
there was a merry smashing of cutters 
and wagons for tlie space of a few min- 
utes, while the respective equines did 
a few warm stunts in somersaults and 
side steps for the benefit of spectators.

Is her pride— and why not— Is there 
anyone who does not admire a beauti* 
ful woman ? Little does the average 
mortal know though what makes her 
grow old, lose her color, become 
wrinkled and cease to be attractive 
while still in youthful years. The true 
cause is this < the nervous system 
which feeds the tissues— provides en- 
ergy to the entire body and promotes 
the circulation and digestion — loses its 
force through want of proper nourisii- 
ment, and the beauty, health and 
strength of woman or man, begins at 
once to fade away. 

P A L M O 

restore the nerves to their proper 
functions, enabling them to rebui'.d the 
wasted tissues, and to thus restore t!ie 
lines of grace, youth and beauty too. 
This remedy acts quickly, and in a few 
days produces a feeling of strength and 
buoyancy which is not obtained in any 
other way. Try Palmo Tablets for 
loss of weight, appetite or nerve vigor. 
It does the work.

G. J. Marshall's Suit Against

Jii Ise Dibc-U in district court today 
was hearing' arguments on the question 
of whether or not Cutler J. Marstiall is 
Etlll the court ofRcer (if the city of Dn- 
luth. notwithstanding the fact that 
Mayor Hugo let him out when the Hugo 
administration came in. He claims his 
place under t&ie civil service rules of 
the new charter, and the dispute is very 

This suit is brought by Mr. Marshall 
again.«t the city frr salary f jr the time 
since h .• went out of otHce under the 
mayor's orders, and also to e-stublis^h his 
claim tfiat he is still a court olTicer. He 
was apl'ointtd by Trueii-:en and served 
duririK his two terms. When the Hugo 
administration came in Mayor Hugo 
sent a letter D Marshall, on March Itj, 
1900. saying that his services would b. 
no longer required after April 1, and 
then he appointvd John H. Cameron to 
su'Ci-ed him. No charges or reasons wtiy 
the dismis.sal should have bjen rnad--- 
were tver filed. 

Marshall claims that he was unde.- 
the provisions of the civil service rules 
of ttie new charter, which are to thv 
effect that a dismis.-al must be followed 
withir live days l.y charges or re-asons. 
and that failure to file such reasons 
acts as a reinstatement. He claims to 
have been reinstated by the mayor s 
failure to give any reasons for letting 
him out. The salary claimed runs at 
the rate of $75 per month from April 1, 

The city claims ttiat Marshall gave up 
his "ffice willingly enough, sold his star 
and budge of olfue to his successor, and 
turned over his keys. It claims also 
that ho never made any attempt to get 
the otlice back except to file a claim in 
August, and that he has done no work at 
it Sim f he l» ft. In reply to this Mar- 
.<!hall says he has been ready and willing

The contest was ouite .spirit€-d. over 
HM)0 names being handed in. The but-

was thought proper when it was de-

Bill Randolph, the man that killed 
"One-Armed" Sullivan at Ralney Lake 
city recently. He takes the shooting as 
an ordinary event of frontier life, and 
seems surprised that Duluth papers de- 
voted so much space to it. The letter 
was written to a friend, who has been

business on Rainy Lake. In part it is: 

"Gee whiz! don't they give a sensa- 
tional account of the shooting in the 
Duluth papers? There is not a man in 
this country that has not congratulated 
me on the narrow escape 1 had, and also 
for removing such a disturbing element 
from the community. The facti, are, 
tltat Sullivan shot me in the back while 
1 was walking away from him. The ball 
enteied directly in line with the center 
of my body, but struck the eighth rib 
and glanced ofr at right angles, pene- 
trating about seven in;lies. I suppose if 
it had kept on its original course it 
would have hurt some. I turned as 
quickly a.s possible toward him, and he 
fired again, the ball pa.ssing through i:iy 
left ear. I the shot gun loaded v»ith 
fine shot, and was holding it in my right 
hand, and not having much time to 
sj.are I shot from the hip. shooting him 
in the heart, and that was Mr. Sulli- 
van's finish. 

"He was crazy thie winter about 
wanting to shoot me, and every person 
that came over from his place told me 
of his threats. I could not avoid him.

Tho legal machinery of Koochiching, 
the charming village on tSie banks of 
Itainy river, whore the waters of that 
stream tumble picturesquely over the 
falls that give the settlement its name, 
was set in motion on the killing of 
Suilivan by Randolph at Rainy Lake 
City a few days ago. There have been 
several hitches in the proceedings, and 
they are not concluded yet, but it seems 
I robable that the result will be the 
absolutic n of Will Randolph from any 
blame for killing Sullivan. 

The matter might liave been settled at 
the coroner's imiuiry. but the jury had a 
misapprehension as to its powers in the 
matter, and its verdict left a charge 
against Randolph. After hearing the 
evidence the jury decided that Sullivan 
came to his death by a shotgun wound 
from a 12-borc ?<hntgun in the hands of 
William G. RandoIr>h. 

This did nit leave the matter satis- 
factory, however, and the Jury looked 
into the matter further. They did not 
wLsh to leave a stone unturned that 
might hide an Imputation against the 
honesty of the purpose with which 
Randrlph sighted the gun that sped the 
bullet that ended the life of Frank Sulli- 

At the time of the inquiry they be- 
lieved that all they could do was to 
find the cause of death and at whoso 
hands It occurred. With better advice 
they found that their duties did not 
stop there, so they sent to Grand Rap- 
ids, the county seat, a supplemental 
verdict, that of justifiable homicide in 

The justice of the peace at Koochi- 
ching held a perliminary examination, 
but came to no conclusion. After hear- 
ing all of the evidence the justice sent 
the papers and testimony in to the 
county attorney st Grand Rapids to see 
what his wishes were. 

In the meantime Randolph is still 
held a prisoner, and is in the care of 
the doctor. The bullet, a ;^8-caliber, 
buried itself in the t^esh between the 
ribs just below Randolph's heart. His 
condition is not dangerous, thou.srh he 
is still too ill to be moved to Grand

By tlie Judge. 

Topeka, Feb. 21.— A decision favoring 
the defendant was rendered today by 
Judge McCabe in the city court in the 
case against Mrs. Carrie Nation for 
smashing the Senate saloon. 476 Kansas

dismissing the case held that since Mrs. 
Nation iiad no malice toward the proprie-

Richards, the husband, was yesterday 
arraigned in the munictpjU court and 
bound over to the grand jurv. The charge 
will depend upon the autcjime of the

It is now claimed tliiit an Intimacy ex- 
isted beitween Mrs. Rieharns and W. B. 
Finch, whom sb.e r.sslsted as an Instructor 
In dancing. The husband had employed 
a private detective who claims to havi- 
followed the pair to v.trious hotels after 
the dancing hssi.ns, ind that they had 
awavs rcglstereil as \V. H. Henry and 
wife." St. CIcud. Mr Finch, when seen 
last night, deniw thnsPfchurgMi, ami says 
that to Ifl.^ full knowle^Ige Mrs. Richards 
was an ht^iest. h a r<l -working woman and 
that his relations with her were purely 
of a business nature. 

Richards has lived in Minneapolis for 
manv years, but about three months ago 
went to Diduth and worked there until re- 
centlv when he returned to this city. He 
savs the revolver with which he shot his 
wife was purchased by him in Duluth, 
because "there were so many holdups in 
that city." 


Position Wlileh T. H. Larice 

Leaves Wiil Go to Martin 


Ttiere is a well-defined rumor In local 
railroad circles to the effect that Martin 
Adson, who for some time past has been 
the traveling passenger agent of the 
Duluth, South Shore & Atlantic roaj, 
with headquarters in Duluth, will be tLie 
next assistant general passenger agent 
of the South Shore road, in the place of 
T. H. Larke, who resigned several days 
ago to accept the Northwestern general 
agency of the Dominion Steamship com- 
pany. AATiile it is impossible ta get the 
report confirmed at the local olfice of 
the South Shore road, it is believed that 
Mr. Adson's apr- intment was decided 
on within the last two days, and that he 
v.ill assume the office on March 1. at 
whicti date Mr. Lai ke's resignation g3es 
into effect. Although he is a young man, 
Mr. Adson has widt acquaintance in the 
Northwest and thiMUghnut the country 
tributary to the South Shore road, and 
is kniwn among his railrodl friends as 
a hustler in the passenger business. A 
confirmation of the report would be very 
pleasing to them. 


Crew of ilia Fraigbt Is Held 

Responsible For Spoonar 


It Is understood that the blame for the 
Omaha wreck that •ccurped at Spooner 
nearly two weeks ag», 1^. which the Chi- 
cago limited ran intt the rear of a 
freight train, demolishing a numl>er of 
cars and badlv damaging one of the ii«nv 
Shanghai engines, has bt^n fixed on the 
train crew of the freight train and a.^ a 
result an engine r, fireman and conduc- 
tor are open for another engagement. 
According to the report the freigdt crew 
received orders at Shell tjake to procee'l 
to Spoc.ner within an' hour and five min- 
utes that was allowiVi o»er the llmited's 
time, but the crtw t -ok an hour and thir- 
ty-five minu:es, and than, instead of 
keeping off the main track when It was 
learned that their lime was more than 
up, thev iiuil.-^d the freight train in on 
the main tra-^k at Siwoner. The limited 
came around a crrve but a short dis- 
tance from the rear of the freight train 
and was running nearly fifty-five miles 
an hour. The engineer of the limite<l is 
said to have almost checked his train 
within 300 feet of the caboose. It Is in- 
timated that had any lives been lost the 
crew might not have gotten off with a 
simpla dismissal from service.

Five Hundred Dollars Offered 

By St. Paul Man— A 

Written Proposal. 

St. Paul, Feb. 21.— The greatest sen- 
sation in the history of the National 
Creamery Butter Makers' association 
came to the surface today, when W. 
D. Collyer, of Chicago, one of the judges 
of the butter exhibit, lodged a formal 
complaint with the executive commit- 
tee, charging a St. Paul butter maker 
with offering him a $500 bribe. Attached 
to the complaint was the written pro- 
posal which the alleged briber had put 
in black and white. 

The executive committee instantly 
went into secret session. The three 
judges of selection were summoned to 
appear. An expert stenographer was 
summcmed to take testimony and a 
number of witnesses who had more or 
less connection with the matter were 
called. Great efforts were made to 
suppress the facts and prevent the pub- 
lic from getting hold of the story. 

It is said that there are other charges 
which will be invertigated before the 
committee finishes its star chamber ses- 
siosn. The facts brought out in the 
investigation are known only to those 
present. The committee examined 
three before noon and sent 
out for several more. The judges were 
called in about noon. 


Hr. Hepburn Takes a Fall 
Out of the Kaval 


■Washington, Feb. 21.— Immediately after 
the reading of th- journal today the 
house wurt Into committee of the whole

eral deficiency appropriation bill. Th** 
point of order against Mr. Sherman's 
amendment to prevent hazing at the 
nav li academy at Annai>olis. which wai 
l>ending when the house adjourned ycs- 
terdav. was passed over temporarily. 

During the discussion in the house of 
the question of haz'ng Mr. Hepburn creat- 
ed a sensation by o<=clarlng that the larg-^ 
number of desertions from the army and 
the lack of men m the navy were due to 
the fact that American citizens refuse to 
serve under men "schooled in tyranry 
and oppressi n." Mr. Hepburn said h.> 
had a list of twenty-five vessels in the 
fnited States wricked by lncomi>etent 
officers since the ch se of the civil war. 
He declared that officers stood by each 
other and with but a solitary exception 
the commanders of these vessels were let 
off with slight punishment. He denounced 
hazing in unmeasured terms and said .te 
wanted to see a fixeil and certain punish- 
ment for it. 

Washington. Feb. 21.— At the conclusion 
of routine business in the senate today, 
the resolution previously offered by Mr. 
Jones (Ark.> to discharge the commit- 
tee on judiclarv from consideration of 
the so-called anti-trust bill and to proceed 
to the ronsideration of that measure was 
called up. The senate took no action on 
the motion of Mr. Jones as to the anti- 
trust Vdll. it going over until tomorrow. 
The senate then proceeded with the post- 
office apprToriation bill and :Mr. Wolcott 
addressed the senate in opposition to the 
pneumatic tube service. 

Mr. S"ooner, in the senate today, asked 
unanimous consent to take a vote on the 
oleomargarine bill on March 2 at 3 o'clock. 
Mr. Pettus objected. 

The imeumatic tube amendment of- 
fered bv Mr. Carter on behalf of the com- 
mittee on postoffires was defeated by the 
senate, ayes, 26; noes, 37.

In certain paits of Australia cannibal 
trees nourish — trees which can hold a 
man's body in the center and devour it 
as readily" as >ur insectivorous wild 
llnwers trap the injects on which they 
partlv subsist, says the London Mail. 

In appearance they are like gigantic 
pineapples, m.arv of them being eleven 
feet 1n height. What foliage there is 
consists of broad, boardlike leaves, 
which grow on 1 fringe at iLs apex. 

These leaver do not stand erect, how- 
ever, but droop over and hang to the 
ground They are very big, for in some 
of the largest fpecimens thery measure 
from fifteen to twenty feet, each leaf 
being quite strong enough to bear the 
weight of a man. 

There Is more in these le.'ives than 
meets the eye, for hidden under them is 
a peculiar growth of spearlike forma- 
tion, arranged iiacircle. This performs 
the same function for the jdante a.s 
pistils do for towers. Moreover, they 
are most sensiti .-e to the touch of a ttlck 
or other hard substance. 

The natives formerly wor.'hipped this 
"devil's tree." for they dreaded itt^ 
wrath. When its green leaves rose 
restlesolv up and down its worshippers 
imagined that ii was necessary to make 
a sacrifice to appease its anger. 

One of their number was immediately 
chosen and driven by his howlin?? 
tribesmen up one of Its leaves to the 

The Instant the unhappy victim 
stepped into the middle of the plant, the 
boardlike leaves would fly together, 
clutching and literally squeezirg the life 
out of him. 

Early travelers in Australia have toM 
us that the cannibal tree would thu« 

hold its prey until every particle of hla 
tlesh had fallen from his bonc.«, after 
which the leaves would slowly relax 
their grim hold, leaving the gaunt skele- 
ton to fall heedlessly to the ground. 


Since the middle ages Germany has been 
known as the center of industry in ihe 
toy trade, particularly the district of 
Tliurlngia. The manuf.acture of dolls is 
of C'jmparatlvely modern origin, however, 
having been begun about a century a^o. 
Oliver J. -D. Hughes, Unlteil States con- 
sul In Coburg, gives an Interesting ac- 
count of how dolls tire made: 

"The commonest kind of doll now In tna 
market is the one whicli gons under the 
name of "wax doll." Its trunk is made of 
cheap shirting, stuffed with sawdust or 
exceisior; its legs and arms and head are 
usually of papier-mache, the last h.aving 
a thin wax covering: a coarse shirt com- 
pletes this i)Oor anc simple type of doll, 
and yet many hands have l^een ejigaged 
in getting it ready. Certain worKmei* 
make the arms and legs, either by cutting 
them out of \vo:id or by molding them of 
papier-mache; others arrange the lim'os 
In flat wooden boxi-s, which are put near 
the stove or In tne sun to dry; others 
dip the arms a«d legs into a basin con- 
taining red dye. to give them a flesh-llk« 
appearance; other.s sew, ixiver and stuff 
the doll; others jiaint the eyebrows. Up* 
and hisir; if this last be not Indicated dv 
I)aint, mohair Is glued on. The manu- 
facture of the gla^s eyep, as well as tho 
fixing of them in the head. Is again done 
bv difftrent peoole; and all parts arc put 
together by a small manufacturer, wao 
usually lives in town and to whom tho 
workmen engaged in the manufacture of 
parts of dolls carry the product of their 
wer-klv loll. 

"Model dolls are similar to the wa.x 
dolls, with the lyception that they are 
providi-d with heads made entirely of 

"The making of fine doll wigs is an art 
by itself. .Mohair, which l.s imported in 
Large quantities from England, Is used 
In this manufacture; sometimes human 
hair is employed, but, the latter material 
being expensive, its use win always be 
limited. . 

•e consumption of china bisque heafls 
Is large, and aijout a dozen factories are 
manufacturing them exclusively. 

"The mass out cf which china heads 
are made ciuisists of china clay, quartz 
sand feldspath and kaolin. Tnese ma- 
terials art put into Iron drums and mix -d, 
ground iK-tween fiint stones and wettoJ. 
The mixture is filled into hollow gypsum 
forms, and remains hing enough to allow 
|)art of the mass to settle on the Inner 
surface of the mold and become firm. Iho 
-emaircer Is poured out ag«ln. and tne 
L'vnsum forms, which consist of two 
jTarts are rem .ved s) that the china hea-ia 
in their unfinished state, are left. Re-

Chicago Inter Ocean, 
found only seven 
gainful occupations 
open to women, and for these but four 
took them away from home. In 1900 about 
B,000,<J«0 women were engaged in about 4<W 
gainful pursuits. In Europe women are 
even more "advanced" than in America 
In this respect. In Germany 25 per cent 
Of the women are engaged in bread-win- 
jilng occupations: in England 27 jxr cent, 
and in France 40 per cent of the factory 
liands are women, besides many thousands 
of women working in other gainful occu- 
pations. The question is naturally being 
asked If this tendency of women to in- 
vade the labor domain formerly occuplod 
by men is l>eneticial to humanity. One 
student of sociology, Henry P. Finck. has 
expressed the opinion that "this inva.sion 
Tjy women of the bread-winning occupa- 
tions must inevitably change the charac- 
ter of women unless it soon be checked. 
As they obtain the same education, en- 
([age in the same pursuits, follow the same 
Ideals, their thoughts and feelings, ho be- 
lieves, their tiistes and manners, and even 
their features, must gradually approxi- 
mate of men." This would result, 
as indied it has resulted already to some 
extent, in the growth of sex antagonism, 
that bodes nothing but evil to both sexes. 
Another critic declares that a "third sex" 
Js in process of formation, composed of 
women who in actual life, in habits. In 
business, in methods, in thought and pur- 
pose, and in a large degree in appear- 
ance, language and tone, are men. Prac- 
ticftlly and as far as possible renouncing 
their s«x, they are yet unable to change 
their sex, and so are wholly of neither. 
Of course, this applies to a small propor- 
tion of women who engage in occupations 
formerlv filled by men, yet nearly every 
One knows some woman to whom this de- 
scription ai)plies. It is evident also their

When the state of Michigan was 
given the upper peninsula as a com- 
pensation for territory taken from lier 
southern boundaries, a great mistake 
Was made in state building. Where a 
state is so <livided by natural bound- 
aries as to render intercourse difficult 
or expensive or where the material in- 
terests are totally different there should 
be a legal separation. The people of 
every part of a state are entitled to a 
local government best suited to their 
interests and when this end cannot be 
attained a divorce should follow, ".t is 
difHcult, however, to secure the divorce- 
ment of one part of a state from an- 
other. There must be mutual conseni: 
— a majority vote of the people — 
coupled with the consent of the United 
States congress. This has never been 
attempted although it has been dis- 
cussed many times. There has been 
but one divorce and that was a forcible 
separation, accomplished as a war mea- 
sure. Reference is made to the creation 
of West Virginia out of the territory of 
the old dominion. An attempt is now 
being made by the state of Mississippi 
to secure the pan-handle of Florida by 
concession, the object being to secure 
a better outlet to the Gulf of Mexico. 
In this case there would be no :roui)le 
to secure the favorable action of con- 
gress and also the consent of the state 
of Mississippi, Florida being the only 
difficult proposition. Her consent might 
be obtained by purchase, providing 
Mississippi was willing to pay the 

A few years ago there was much 
talk about Wisconsin ceding a portion 
of her northwest territory to Minnesota, 
so that the cities at the head of the 
lakes might be united under the laws 
of one state. The movement, however, 
ended as it began, in talk. There is a 
proposition to change state boundarie.-?, 
which, if carried out, would be of in- 
estimable benefit to a large territory 
and to the inhabitants thereof. There 
is the proposition to erect out of the 
territory of Michigan, Wisconsin and 
Minnesota the new state of Sup?rior. 
The northern peninsula of Michigan \s 
as far removed in sympathy and inter- 
est from its southern sister as it is 
from the state of New York. The same 
is true of the northern part of Wiscon- 
sin. It would not be stretching the 
truth^ very much to make the same 
allegation regarding the northeastern 
part of Minnesota, v. 

Here are portions of three states, 
with no community of Interests with 
the older and governing portions to 
which they were tied before their ros- 
sibiiities were discovered. These sec- 
tions are bound to each other by a simi- 
larity of climate, by identity of re- 
sources and by convenient and cheap 
means of intercommunication. Mining, 
lumbering and commerce are the ociu- 
pations of their people. Surrounding 
Lake Superior on three sides, they are 
connected by a thousand lines of waL-r 
transportation. The railroads -^f the 
regions all center at the head of the 
lake, which is rapidly becoming the 
commercial center of the lake region. 

The proposition to unite these sec- 
tions into the state of Superior civn- 
mends itself to every man who takes 
the trouble to look at the map j.nd who 
is acquainted with interests involved. 
A line drawn from the head of Green 
bay to a point west of the St. Croix 
river, thence north to the Canadian 
boundary, embracing all the territory 
east and north. Including the upper 
penin.sula of Michigan, except that 
which would fall on the Wisconsin side 
of the east and west line, would make 
an ideal .state. This consummation, 
however devoutly to be wished, can be 
accomplished only under one condition. 
Should the United States senate be- 
come .so near a tie that the control 
could be secured by creating another 
Rfpublican state, the selfishness of the 
parent states might be overcome by 
political necessity so far as to carry a 
proposition for division. Justice to the 
inhabitants of the lake region and the 
demands of the vast interests centered 
there will never be sufficient to bring it 

The creation of a state such as above 
outlined would re.'^ult in unmeasured 
benefit to Duluth and Superior. It 
would result in a consolidation that 
would soon place the combination 
among Northwestern cities. The erec- 
tion of the state of Superior out of the 
territory named is one of those peculiar 
propositions that is so fair on its face 
that every one admits that it ought to 
carry and which every one know^ wiil 
never carry on its merits. The peopleof 
the farming districts are too proud of 
the mineral wealth and the romincrce 
of this, to them, unknown region to 
consent to let it go by itself and paddle 
its own caiioe.

It is not strange that the cuckoo press, 
which advocates the violation of the 
solemn pledge made by the United States 
to secure absolute independence for the 
Cubans, should likewise attempt to bol- 
ster up the highly discreditable policy of 
naval favoritism adopted by the Mc- 
Kinley administration, as a result of 
whcih the officers of the navy, who dis- 
tinguished themselves in the naval 
battle oif Santiago, have yet failed to 
leoeive the recognition and promotion \ 
to which they are entitled. With un- 
blushing audacity the supporters of this 
scheme of favoriti«>m now assert that 
jthe minor officers have not been pro- 
moted, because those senators who want 
to see even-hande<l justice dealt out. re- 
fuse to promote Admiral Samp.«?o!i, who 
was miles away from Santiago, over Ad- 
miral Schley, who was in the thick of 
the fight. Th»t Schley was nor. the ac- 
tual commander-in-chief of the tleet 3t 
Santiago \vr.^ also due to the ^am-.- 
favoritism that has since endeavored ti; 1 
jump Samption over his head. Sampson I 

was not a rear adnrriral then, but he has 
since been promoted to that grade. 

The fact is that the secretary of the 
navy, and the president, who has ap- 
proved the plan of favoritism, are re- 
sponsible, because Motion and Clark 
and others, whose gallant services en- 
title them to recognition, are not pro- 
moted. To adopt their recommenda- 
tions and confirm the nominations sent 
to the senate would be a gross injustice. 
The truth is that the senate is given to 
understand that unless it agrees to the 
advancement of Sampson to the place 
next to Dewey it is idle to ask any re- 
wards for Lieut. Hobson or Capt. Clark. 
Unlef5s the senate concurs in the slur 
cast upon Rear Admiral Schley, the man 
who actually fought the battle off San- 
tiago bay, while the commander-in- 
chief was absent with a ve&sel of the 
first class on an errand suited to a steam 
launch, there will be no rewards for 
anybody. What the senate will do can- 
not be foretold. But there is no mis- 
taking existing public sentiment. That 
eehtiment is that if Rear Admiral Schley 
cannot retain his superior position in 
the general advancement for merit jus- 
tice demands that he shall keep it with- 
out advancement for anybody.

The Minnesota legislature has before 
it this winter a matter that has more 
grains of common sense in it in a min- 
ute than the late Minnesota national 
park scheme had in all its life. That 
is the proposal to establish in the pine 
woods of Northern Minnesota a sani- 
tarium for consumptives. Of the cur- 
ability of consumption in its earlier 
stages, there can be no question. The 
medical books are full of cases where 
even in advanced stages of the dread 
disease it has been arrested and cures 
pronounced. The cure is not to be 
looked for in drugs and nostrums, how- 
ever, but in the well-springs of health 
and ozone that nature has provided in 
the pine woods. 

And yet it is no easy matter, especial- 
ly if the disease has advanced so far 
that the constitution is greatly weak- 
ened, to get that balm without its ac- 
companying rigors of a northern cli- 
mate. Though bracing and full of life 
for a person in ordinary health, too 
free an exposure to all that a northern 
winter — with apologies to the present 
one — Ijrings, may be serious. A sani- 
tarium, where comfortable homes with 
nourishing food and medical attend- 
ance are provided, would solve the 

With these comforts, Northern Min- 
nesota and its pine trees and others of 
the same family afford a haven for the 
sufferers second to none. A winter in 
the woods, with plenty of out-door ex- 
ercise in the breath of the trees, will do 
wonders, and once a start is made the 
fame of this section as a health resort 
will go afar and bring thousands to 
benefit from its healing air. Even 
without the benefits of such a sani- 
tarium as the one that is proposed, 
much can be done. A log cabin in the 
woods, provided with only the bare ne- 
cessities, may be made a sanitarium 
for its occupant if it is properly used. 
A bed of balsam boughs, on which the 
slumberer may take in with each 
breath of wholesome sleep the healing 
smell of the wood, may prove more po- 
tent than a whole block full of drug 
stores and a regiment of physicians. 

The dread of this terrible disease, tliat 
takes off more people in a quiet way 
than all the plagues that ever scourged 
the earth, is widespread. All over the 
globe people are wending their painful 
journeys seeking relief from its terrors. 
Sometimes they find it, sometimes they 
go only to die far from thefr homes. 
The boats and trains going to points 
said to be good for consumptives are 
always crowded with patients. In many 
cases relief is sought in a change cf 
climate too late, when the disease has 
fastened its hold on the system 
deeply to be shaken off. These 
grimages, pitiful in the extreme, 

Of all the places saught for this re- 
lief, none can excel this section, and 
when it becomes known generally, that 
pathetic train of wan faces will turn 
this way with the hope that is one ot 
the most sorrowful features of the 


A little Kansas town named Anthony 
was one of those in whicTi the illicit sa- 
loons were wrecked by Mrs. Nation and 
her followers, and a paper published there 
gives some particulars of the occurence 
that were not mentioned in the news re- 
ports. The Anthony Republican says: "A 
terrible feature of the worK was the op- 
portunity offered and eagerly seized for 
looting. Men and boys followed the wo- 
men from s.iloon to saloon and helped 
themselves to many gallons of liquor and 
many thousands of cigars. The result was 
that the town became filled with drunken 
men and boys. Boys could be seen spew- 
ing about the streets from the unac- 
customed use of tobacco, and a number 
of them were drunk wno probably had 
never tasted liquor before in their lives." 
This is a perfectly natural sequel to Mrs. 
Nation's style of temperance work. One 
kind of intemperance bretnls another. 

That the condition of the Dowager Em- 
press Frederick is considered to be serious 
is evident from the fact that King Edward 
will go to see her next Saturday. It is 
said that Queen Victoria felt keenly the 
separation from her oldest daughter in the 
last moments of her life. Victoria Ade- 
laide, the princess royal, was born Nov. 21, 
1840, and is a year older than King Ekl 
ward VII. She married Frederick, crown 
prince of Prussia, Jan. 25, IS-iS, and has 
had eight children, six of whom are still 
living. The Emperor William and Prince 
Henry are lier two surviving sons. 

When the prohibitory amendment was 
adopted in Kansas, the vote on the amend- 
ment did not constitute a majority of ih ■ 
votes for the electors, althoujrh It 
had a majority of the votes cast on the 
amendment. The vote of the state for 
pre.«;dential electors was 2<)5,7."6. On the 
amendnit-nt there were 93,3'>2 who were in 
favor of it, 84,304 who were not and 27,1.j'i 
who didn't care enough about it to vote. 
It might be well to resubmit the quesfon 
to the people of that state again. 

United States Senator John W. Daniel 
of V;vf;it::a Is looked upon as certain to b^ 
■ •iected a member of the state con.=:tltu- 
liorjal convention. "While it may be tru.> 
that the convention may oe a political 

graveyard," he lat^ wrote to a member 
of the Vlrgriimf. leMslature, "a man can 
never die but|<)ncei,--and I can do no bet- 
ter than die <K)ln# my duty."

A young couple of Norfolk. Conn., 
walked thirty miles to get married as they

riage Is a failure or not. 

It might be gathered, from the stories 
truthful men are telling of the acts of the 
Euroi>ean soldiery in Pekin, that barbar- 
ism is contagious; and that these troops, 
rather decent fellows heretofore, had suf- 
fered with quite a bad attack of it. 

It is said that the passengers on the 
trolley cars at Colorado Springs match 
nickles with the conductor to see wiicther 
they will have to pay their fare or not. It 
would be interesting to know where the

At a luncheon given in New York re- 
cently Andrew Carjiegie was Introduced as 
"the star-spangled Scotchman, whose 
hobby was mind-building and soul-uplift-

little steel deal Is considered.

v.ard for his gallent conduct at Santiago 
advaneement from idace No. l.'> to No. 5 
on the list of. navHl constructors. This 
gives him the relative rank of captain 
instead of that of lieutenant. At an ex- 
tri>mely early .stage in his career Mr. Hob- 
son has only ifinr men between him and 
the chief constructor, who has the relative 
rank of jidmiral. All will admit that the 
hero of the Merriniac richly deserves the 
rew.ird he thus rec'-ives. but all mi'^ re- 
gret that the law iirovides no method of 
reward except by what is in effei t the 
punishment of inno.-ent men. By advanc-

ahead of men wh^) have l^een as mu<-h

effect of the transaction, for each one of 
them is one pliice lower and that much 
further from promotion to the higbci

tical reduction in standing through no

vide some means for the reward of merit 
which does not involve an act of injustice.

measure directs the president, secretary

'Twas Saturday night, and the teacher sat 

Alone, her task pursuing; 
She averaged this and she averaged that

She reckoned percentages, so many boys

And to what all the absence amounted.

Over many columns and pages; 
Yankee. Teutonic, African Celt,

And her weary heart still lower.

Plan of Reapportionment At 

Roporied liy the Sub- 



Lively Debate At the Commit- 
tee Meetlnf; and Action 
Is Delayed. 

St. Paul, Feb. 21.-The question of how 

to cut Minnesota up into nine congres- 
sional districts is now up to the joint 
committee on rea]>portionment. The 
sub-committee finibhed its work and r*^- 
ported at 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon 
to a meeting of the full committee. 
There were but :hree changes made 
from the original .scheme as published 
in The Herald three weeks ago. They 
were Uhe result of a concession demand- 
ed by Ramsey cottnty, which rose in 
rebellijn at the proposition to leave it 
with only Washington county to con- 
tribute Republican majorities. The St. 
Paul men, a.<9 usua , came to the front 
and compelled the committee to leave 
Chisago with its banner Republican 
majority, in the I'ourth district. To 
make this up In .)art to the Eighth 
district, Mille Lacs is taken from the 
Sixth, which is compensated by the ad- 
dition of Meeker, taken from the new 

Hennepin is not divided. As usual, 
Ramsey got what It wanted and Henne- 
pin didn't. The St Paul men threatened 
to smash the committee's report if their 
demand was not complied with. The 
moral is obvious. ^Vith Ramsey In ac- 
cord with the scheme. Its chances for 
going through are nuch better. There 
is a greater inequality in population 
than ever, the new Eighth district being 
left With only 157,543 people. Of course 
there may be some changes made, but 
this is not likely. 

There was a lively time at the meet- 
ing of the joint ccmmittee yesterday 
afternoon. Senator Daughcrty present- 
ed the report of the sub-committee and 
moved its adoption. Representative 
James A. Larson, of Redwood county, 
attacked the sub-committee for having 
held executive sessi ins and said ttiat .a 
plan about whicli h? had spoken to the 
members of the committee at different 
times was not considered at all. He 
denounced exccutivs sessi.ins and de- 
clared that Mr. Da igherty and Repre- 
sentative Ferris had the plan that is 
presented in the report all cooked up 
montFis before and are now attempting 
to rush it through. Mr. Daugherty de- 
nied everything that Mr. Larson had 
said and Mr. Larson reiterated his 
statement.^. It came to a question of 
veracity between the two when Repre- 
sentative Washburn, of Minneapolis, 
interposed a few remarks against the 
sub-committee's methods. 

A substitute mot on was adopted to 
r.iave all plans submitted to the sub- 
crmmittee within tventy-four hours if 
they are to be consiitred, and tho com- 
mittee then adjourred until next Wed- 

The following table shows the con- 
gressional districts proposed by the sub- 
committee giving the 1900 population of 
each county and district, and the Re- 
publican or Democr itic majority, based

Fire Destroys Everyihing But tlie Wails of 

DuiutSi's State Institution — Insurance 

of $40,000 May Cover tlie Loss. 

NothliipT but the walls remains today of 
Duluth's new normal school. Fire of 
unknown origin gutted it last evening. 
The flames were slow in burning, but 
very complete in their work. The walls, 
"Which were unusually well built, are 
still standing in apparently good con- 

Tlie building would have been finished 
In about a month, though it would not 
have been occuiiied till next September. 
From present indications, repairs will 
be made immediately, if the legislature 
does not oppose the appropriation, as it 
did the pn jert to build the school.s here. 
In of immediate repairs the open- 
ing >f the school next fall would not be 

Thf building was to cost $6S,000 with- 
out 111..- heating and plumbing, and the 
state and contractors carried $40,000 in- 
surance on it. 

Tliou.'^and.s of people that went out to 
see it will not soon forget the beauty 
of the scene. Sitting high up on the 
hill.side at Twenty-third avenue east 
and Fifth street, it looked like a furnace 
Avith the seething mass of flames flash- 
ing through the openings and archways. 
A column of sparks fully 100 feet high 
drnpped down in all directions like an 
avalanche of fireworks. 

All day yesterday about thirty car- 
penters, together with a large force of 
painters, were working on the finishings 
of the bnilding. The contractors and dire( tly in charge of the workmen 
say that no fire-producing material was 
left in the building when the workmen 
stopped at 5:30 last evening. Notwith- 
standing this, however, it is gtmerally 
believed that there was a spontaneous 
rombusticin of oils used in the paint- 

Just about 8:.'?0 Mrs. George Ash 
chanced to look out of the window of 
ht-r home at 2:127 East Second street and 
noticed the blaze up on the .second floor. 
Fred Scott ran to the home of Zar D. 
Scott, 221S FTast First street and tele- 
phoned to fire headquarters. 

In th«' meantime the fire was burning 
very slowly. The tilf r of log, solid brick 
I'artitions and well-built walls kept the 
air out of the building, and the fire 
•would only have damaged part of tfhe 
Imikllng had it been l:)cated anywhere 
n*ar a hydrant or a good supply of 
water. The first apparatus to reach the 
scene carried 2.')00 of hose, and when 
hooked on the hydrant at Twenty- 
first avenue east and First street, fhe 
firemen found that they were short 
about r.OO feet The second line was 
from Seventeenth avenue east and 
Third street, and when Xo. ?, company 
arrived with 1200 feet of hose it was 
found that ?M0 feet would be reciuired. 
Had the firemen been able to get their 
streams on at once the fire wuuld have 
made little headwa.v. The flames worked 
through the roof at 9:20 and it was 
nearly an hour after before a single 
stream couM be jnit on. and then the 
pressure was so great that the hose 
kept bursting ev» ry little while. 

As soon as tfie opening in ti>e roof was 
made the flames leaped over the oils 
and varnishes and spread in all direc- 
tions. The comjilete destruction of 
everything within the building that 
could imsKibly burn was then the matter 
of an hiiur or so. 

O. W. M> Idnim. foreman for MacLeod 
A Smith, the gi-neral contractors, is most 
nosirive ffaat the building was not 
burned as a result of spontaneous com- 
bustion. I^ast night he said that it must 
have been incendiarism. 

Chief Tllack of the fire department 
says that it might have been of incen- 
dl.i.ry origin. l>ut the only thing that 
v.ould lead to this trieory is the absence 
of another. Cojitinuing. the chief said: 

"The contractors say thai no smok- 
ing was allowed in the building. That 
is true, but still it is possible that a 
matih could have been dropped some- 
where. When men are prohibited from 
smoking all day, they usually e^- ioke as 
s-oor. as they are out from under this 
restriction. The men left their work 
:it iii'M .mil it seems reasonable that in 
lighting their i)ipes they would strike 
their matches befoi-e they went outside. 
There may have been rags or waste 
around, and the fire might have started 
from spontaneous combustion. It must 
be remembered that the buildin.g 
burneii slowly ^^nd the fire Ci>uld have 
been there for h<'urs before di.scovery. 

On all sides today the lack of fore- 
sight of certain state olficers in not 
providing a water supply for the new 
building is critici^jed. Last summer l*ro- 
fes.sor Phelps, the Duluth member of 
the normal school hoard, called atten- 
tion ti> possible danger from fire. He 
urged that a water supply be arranged 
for first. The board has now under 
consideration a siiecial pumping station 
to he Kicated on the water main frcjm 
Lakewood for the purjKJse of getting 
water up to the normal school site. 

The new normal school was nol called 
a fiiepr<'of building, but a .great many 
firei>roof structures have burned more 
quickly. It was of Fienaissance archi- 
tecture and designed by Palmer. Hal] & 
Hur.t. of this city. It was three stories 
high with a basement that could oe 
used for school room purposes. The 
walls up to the second floor were of 20- 
ineb soliil masonry and the second and 
third floor Itt-inch solid masonry. There 
were forty rocmis in the Ijuilding and 
between each room a 16-inch partition 
of brick. The building covered a 
ground space of 176 by 85 feet. The 
only woodwork in it was in the floors 
ami casing. The legislature appropri- 
ated |7.'>.000 for its construction rttitT ef- 
forts were being made to have about 
$2.">.t"H)0 additional appropriated. 

The theory that the fire may have 
been of inetndiary origin is i^ot credited. 
The motive that should prompt any 
siK h .actiun is too ditficult to find. The 
theory nf spontaneous combustion is 
the one that is given the most credit. 

It is true that the buildin.g was ex- 
ceptionally clean. Nearly every room in 
the place was broom cleaned. A day 
«>r two ago. ht)wever, a couple of car- 
loads of wood finish were received and 
these were being "fllled" In one of the 
ro<ims. There was a considerable 
amount of this and it is reasonable to 
think that alth-mgh the room was well 
cleaned afterward that there may have i 
been some waste saturated with oil. or 
something of that nature dropped 
among the lumber and been overlooked 
when the room was cleaned at night. 

The insurance of $40,000 may be 
enough to put the building in shape 
.igain and it may not. It was nearer 
completion than most people supposed. 
It would have been ready to turn over 
by May 1 and possibly before. The

total amount of the MacLeod & Smith 
contract was $68,200. The heating 
plant and the plumbing was in a separ- 
ate contract. The former cost some- 
thing like $6000 and the latter about 
$800. MacLeod & Smith had all of their 
work completed, except an amount that 
would be covered by about $5000. The 
building, in the shape in which it was, 
therefore represented about $70,000. 

An examination this morning showed 
that the walls seemed to be in good c^'U- 
dition. There :s but one crack in the 
outer walls, and that is a small one, on 
the 'V€St side of th-> bn'lding, up toward 
the top. It may be necessarj to replace 
a portion of the wall to repair that 
crack. Some of the inside walls will also 
need some repairs, though not very ex- 
tensively. The partitions were nearly 
all of solid brick, and they seem to have 
stood the test excellently. The new par- 
titions that were of tile are gone. The 
tile roof, costing about $4000, is a total 
loss. On the front of the building some 
of the stone has been cracked and 
shivered s<jmewhat, and thi^ will be the 
most serious part of the work to repair. 
The dama.ged blocks may be taken out 
by jacking up the portions above, and 
the front may have to be partially turn 
down. The iron stairways appear to be 
in .good shape, though when the debris 
is cleared away they may be found to be 
somewhat damaged. Of the heating 
plant nothing remains but the boilers, 
and they are all right. The balance Is 
simply a mass of twisted iron. The 
plumbing, also, is a total loss. 

The contractors, the architects and 
Professor Phelp-s of the board all hope 
that the insurance will he sufllciont to 
put the building in shape again, but 
there is always so much uncertainly 
about the extent of damage until the 
men get to work repairing it that they 
are not too sanguine. When the debris 
is cleared away many things may be 
discovered that are not now apparent. 

If the adjustment of the insurance is 
promptly made, the contractors and 
architects are confident that the build- 
ing can be put in shape so that school 
may be opened this fall, as was coi;- 
templated. The situation is in the hands 
of the insurance companies, and if they 
are di--posed to act promptly there will 
be no trouble in getting to work at once. 

The insurance is carried by just two 
companies. The Home of New York had 
$30,000 and the Westchester $10,000 on 
the structure. The insurance was placed 
by O. H. Clarke. 

It should perhaps be explained that 
the alleged cut of the buildin.g, which 
appeared in the News Tribune thir* 
morning, is not one of the cschool which 
burned. It is the original design of the 
building, which had to be modified when 
the sum whi<h Duluth was able to get 
for the buil<ling was cut in two from 
that which they hid expected. The plan 
finally adopted had no towers, and no 
east and west wings, such as appear in 
the cut. 


Ten-Year-Old Boy Is Killed 
at Si, Mary's Hos- 

Leslie Craig was killed by falling down 
an elevator shaft at St. Mary's hospital 
yesterday afienioon. He is the 10-year-oUi 
son of G. H. Craig, of 1S12 West First 
street, and was taken to the hospital two 
weeks ago. suffering from an attack of 
apjn ndieiiis. Y«*sterday afternoon his 
fathor went to the hospital to lake him 
home and found the 111 tie fellow dead. 

The boy was riding <Jn the elevator with 
the elevator condui tor, Frank Keohana. 
He tried to ^et off on the fourth floor 
without giving the elevator boy time to 
stop, the little fellow thinking that he j 
w.>ul(l step over on a broad sill and let 
the ear go by. He did it so uiiieklv that 
Keohana was unable to even cat.'h hold 
of him. The car kept on upward i-xjueez- 
ing the little fellow up against the si'I 
and when the force wa.s released he fell 
headlong down the shaft. He lived less 
tlian half an hour. 

Coroner IJoyer made an examination and 
found that no responsibility could be 
placed on employes of the hospital.

many ways of doing business. One 
writer has gone so far as to say that 
wireless telegraphy is the greatest dis- 
covery of the age. We beg to differ.

has transmitted to the state departmi-nt 
a tran.slation of an article which recently 
appeared in a German publication liearlng 
upon Russia-American trade and the ex- 
portation of American machinery to Rus- 
sia in particular. The article Is as fol- 
lows: "The increase of the trade of the 
I'nited States with Russia la noticeable. 
This is due to the cordial relations which 
exist between these two countries and to 
the less friendly attitude of Russian mer- 
chants towardjs the manufax'turers of 
other countries. Tlie greater part of the 
orders for the Siberian railway has been 
placed in the I'nited States. Another large 
order amounting to $39.'>.00») in value has 
just been placed in America for machinery

mile in length not far from Charbin In 
Manchuria. Tlie tunnel is to be finished In 
one year's time. Direct connections then 
will be completed between Europe and

Pramenada Cancart and Danca at 
tha Armary. 

The thirty-first anniversary ball of 
Palestine lodge. A. F. -nd A. M., was 
held at the Armory lasi evening, and 
was one of the most brilliant affairs ever 
attempted by the lodge. The Masons 
left nothing undone to make it the com- 
plete success that it was in the matter 
of arrangements, music and entertain- 
ment. The attendance was very clotse 
to 1000 gue.sts. The decorations were 
very beautiful, the orchestra was almost 
hidden among the potted plants. The 
entertainment began at 8:30 o'clock, 
with an overture ijy Flaaten's orchestra. 
About an hour was given up to social 
chat and promenading about, while the 
orchestra played, and dancing began at 
10 o'clock, lasting until 1 o'clock. Claret 
punch and wafers were served during 
the evening. 

Every year Palestine lodge celebrates 
its anniversary in some form, and the 
members of the Masonic fraternity al- 
ways look forward to Palestine's anni- 
versary with the knowledge that they 
will be handsomely entertained. It is 
the oldest lodge in Duluth and the 
largetst. its membership mounting way 
up in the hundreds. 


Robert Curr, Well Known Hare, 
Joined a Big Iron Works. 

The head of the lake.s friends of Robert 
Curr, of Cleveland, who for many sea- 
sons past has spent the summer here 
supervising the building of various boats 
at the shipyards, will bo pleased to learn 
of his selection a.-* sui>ervising ln3i>ector 
and general surveyor by Die Risdon Iron 
works of San Francisco. Mr. Curr serve<l 
his apprenticeship in the shipbuilding 
yards of Scotland, and though still a com- 
paratively youn.g man. has occupied re- 
spon.-rible positions ever since coming to 
this country. He was formerlv the sup- 
erintendent of the Globe shipbuilding 
yard.s, and more recently the geneiaTsur- 
veyor and consulting shipbuilder for the 
Minnesota Iron company, then the inspec- 
tor of hulls and surveyor for the Uesse- 
mer line of boats, dividing his time l>e- 
tween Cleveland. Chicago and Duluth. 
The RIsden company has recentl.v en-

doubtless find ample opportunity to dis- 
play technical and executive ability 
There are m.iny here that will miss Mr 
Curr and his Scotch stories.

■Inorlty Stockliolifert of Con- 
solidated Iron Mines 
Are at Sea. 


Sale Denied at New York 

Office- Stock Advancing 

In Price. 

The report that the Rockefellej- mltdng 
and railroad interests are to go into the 
big Morgan steel combine is of much con- 
cern to a great many people and particu- 
larly to those who have minority stock In- 
terests In the Lake Superior Consolidated 
Iron mines. They know noithlng of the 
deal and they will know nothing until 
they are informed of what they may be 
permitted to do after Mr. Rockefeller has 
closed the deal. It is not the fashion of 
the big oil magn.'ie to co«i.sult minorUy 
interests in hl.j <f inpanies. 

The fact that the local offlclals of the 
company have heard no intimation of 
what Mr. Rockefeller contemplates does 
not excite the slightest surprise among who know anything of Rockefeller 
methods. He does not hasten to inform 
his subordinates of his plans. 

The announcement of the reported sale 
of the Consolidated company to the Mor- 
gan interests says that the consideration 
will be $»),000,iKrJ. Thi.s means that ta-i 
stock of the Lake Superior Consolidated 
Iron mines is *o"i,(NiO,)Kkj. There has been 
issue<l at the present time a little more 
than $LN;,ltO,uO0. The balance is due to 
those holders of stocks in the subordinate 
mining companies, who have not yet come 
in and exchangnd their stocks for stock 
in the big company. Now on the face of 
the matter it would seem as though the 
stockholders would be fairly well salis- 
flt:id to get par for their stock especially 
as they have never reeeived a dividend. 
Xearly all of the stockholders, howev» r, 
believe the holdings of the company and, 
m.ost Importaitt of all, they do- not know 
whether they will get c; for their st(jck 
or what they will get. Thev are Inclined 
to think they will not ^et cash, but will 
get stock in the iiig combine, whether 
they want It or no«. .i 

A Duluth man who has just r^efturned 
from New York says that the talk th^-re 
In financial circles is that but I'ii.WO.'XW 
cash will pass in this deal and that will 

fr;y to Andrew Carnesie. This would 
eave all the other people to get stock in 
the big concern ai>d the qutslion beforo 
them then i.-^, wh it will t^ie stock be worth 
after they get it? Its value will be large- 
ly lixed by what the \^'^^ll street specula- 
tors will pay for it. Thftl is the value cf 
the stock or the small holders. The men 
o-n the inside will not be so much con- 
cerned over the Wall street price, but tne 
small holders who muy want to sell will 
havo to take the Wall st'reet price. 

Opinion among the small holders of 
Con.solldated stoek Is dlvldo<l. Som>' think 
the transfer will be a good thing for 
them and some ar?« v ry much afraid of 
it. It is a fact. h»>w. ver. that the price 
of the stock has be« n advan( Ing in the 
local market. It was held yesterday at 
about $75 a share and there is cimsldor- 
able trading In it. A. R. Macfarlane in 
his itock report yest-'rday quoted It at 
$74 bid. This is an advance of several 
|X)Ints within a few v.c(>ks. There seems 
t'ji bo a demand for the stock and some 
of the holders claim that very little of it 
can be had un<ler $S(). 

The New York office of the T>ake Supe- 
rior Consolidated Iron mines enters a 
denial to the statement that the com- 
pany is to go into the hands cf a big st^-il 
comliine. A dispatch says: 

"Th.- Lake Superior Consolidated Mines 
cnmj;:iny denies emphatically the report 
published widesprtwd that it is in the new 
stit'l combination." 

If the deal goes throusjh as reported It 
means one ownership of the two ore car- 
rying railroads in this county. .\n open 
consolidation of these would mean that 
tho state wciild step in and object. The 
roads would undoubtedly be mnnacrel 
separntelv as now. It has been suggest- 
ed, however, that the verj- knowledj^e that 
both were owned by one Interest would 
cause a sentiment of hostility that wou
